The first historical castle in the town which kept written records, was an old Russian, that it was erected in the IX-X centuries. The greatest power of this degree reached during the reign of Prince Vasil'ko Rostislavich, grandson of the great Kiev prince Yaroslav the Wise [1]. The fortress was Vasilko wooden palisade enclosure, and only castle church in it built of stone. The fortress had several defensive lines, but there was not a well.

Even the entrance to it was not from the east side, both now and in the north - from the current park. Under the castle were buried. After his death in 1124 Vasilko, Terebovlya Duchy became a part of, Galitsky, and later - in the Galicia-Volyn principality. In the reign of Vladimir Igorevich kind of Polotsk, Terebovlya regains its independence. However, in 1211 in a battle with the Magyars, the prince was captured and was executed with his brothers and father. In those days, the wooden walls of the castle began putting a stone, but in 1241 destroyed the base Terebovlia Ordyntsi Batu Khan. In 1341 the city had already referred to as the conquered Poles. In 1346 the Polish king Casimir rebuilt the fortress. On the newer castle was little known, but he was stone, and with walls 1-2 m thick.
