The word for castle in Ukrainian is ‘zamok’. Russian – zamok, Belarusian – zamak. Polish – zamek. Bulgarian -замък. Serbian – zamak. The word originated from proto-Slavic ‘to close’.

From the verb замыкать ‎(zamykatʹ, “to close”), from за- ‎(za-) + -мкнуть, related to Old East Slavic промъкнѫти сѧ ‎(promŭknǫti sę, “to dash past, propagate, be carried”) and Old Church Slavonic мъкнѫти сѧ ‎(mŭknǫti sę, “transpire”). Cognate with Ukrainian замкнути ‎(zamknuty), Belarusian мкнуць ‎(mknucʹ), Bulgarian мъкна ‎(mǎkna, “pull out”), Serbo-Croatian макнути ‎(“to move”), Slovene makníti, Czech mknouti, Slovak mknúť, Polish mknąć ‎(“to move, push, encourage”), whence Russian мчать ‎(mčatʹ). Related to Lithuanian mùkti, munkù, mukaũ ‎(“be released, escape”), Latvian mukt ‎(“knock off, slip”).
