The fortress is a large tourist attraction for the area and Ukraine. In 2007, the fortress was named one of the Seven Wonders of Ukraine.After 1375 it was a part of the Principality of Moldavia. Under the rule of Stephen the Great of Moldavia the fortress was greatly expanded. Under his leadership, new 5–6-meter (16–20 ft) wide and 40 meters (130 ft) high walls were built. He also added three towers and raised the courtyard by 10 meters (33 ft). The courtyard was divided into princes' and soldiers' halves. He also dug deep basements which served as barracks to soldiers. This reconstruction brought the fortress to the structure it has today.

Dniestr to naturalna granica, ma bardzo urwiste brzegi i to miejsce jest jedynym gdzie można było podjechać koniem do lustra wody i przepłynąć w tym właśnie miejscu.Dlatego tak ważne to miejsce militarnie i strategicznie dla wszystkich mieszkańców z północy i południa dla których Kultura i Religia była i jest do dziś inna, różna. Różne narody i grupy etniczne broniły tu swoich granic i swoich kultur, swoich racji bytu, wiele z nich zaginęło, większe i silniejsze zwyciężały, o mniejszych nikt pamiętać chyba nie chce...
