As part of the international project "Digital Transformation for Cultural Heritage Capacity Building in Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine" supported by the Creative Europe programme, the unique Lubart's Castle in Lutsk, Ukraine, has been digitised. 

In total, five cultural heritage sites will be digitised in Ukraine, according to the Skeiron team working on the Vytautas Belt project. 

As part of the Witowit's Belt project, Skeiron, together with the Volyn Foundation NGO and colleagues from Poland and Lithuania, is digitising cultural sites in three countries that are associated with the historical figure of Witowit the Great.

So far, they have managed to complete Lutsk and Kyiv castles, as they were in the time of the Lithuanian prince.

"During his reign, these castles were being built, and he invested significant resources in them. This is the period of transition from wooden to stone construction. Thanks to the Unreal Engine, we managed to create a space where you can walk through the streets of medieval Ukrainian cities and see what the architecture of that period was like in real time," Skeiron said in a statement.

As a result, a website will be created where users will have free access to the digitised objects, as well as an interactive map that will combine historical and cultural sites into a transnational tourist route called the Vytautas Belt, which will connect Lithuania, Poland and Ukraine.
