Vovnushki is an ancient village in the mountainous Dzheirakhsky district of South Ingushetia, near the border with Georgia. But more often, when people talk about Vovnushki, they mean the famous castle complex: the majestic impregnable towers rising from the mountain ridges on both sides of a narrow gorge.


It is believed that there was time when the two castles were connected by a suspension bridge.
