Castles are locations of historical significance found throughout South Zagoria - they remain today as beacons for navigating, places of shelter, and sources of loot.

The history of Chernarus is notably characterised by castles, keeps, and fortresses, built at the turn of the 11th and 12th centuries by Duke Kozlov for the means of protecting strategically important sites which were often attacked from the sea and northern neighbours.[1] With some exceptions, castles constructed during this era all have a similar configuration; an outer wall encompassing a Bergfried tower, with stone bastions and archways. Most castles have been repurposed as tourist attractions for the modern era, complete with wooden access stairs, kiosks, and lodges.

A notable exception is Storozh, which was used by the Chernarussian Government as a prison up until the outbreak, evidenced by infected wearing prison uniform.
