What awaits you

The main points on the map and in the history of Uzhgorod A three-hour walk will allow you to cover all the sights and streets, without which you cannot imagine Uzhgorod

  • We will start our walk from the oldest building in the city - Uzhgorod castle - and consider its defense structures. This is the perfect place to dive into the past: at a local local history museum with many exhibits, you will learn about the semi-mythical prince Laborce, about the arrival of nomadic Hungarians to these lands, about the family of Italian counts Drugetti and medieval Uzhgorod.
  • Along the old street Kapitulnaya we will reach the Greek Catholic cathedral, next to which you will also see the residence of the bishop. We will go down the former Wool Street into city ​​center, and on the way, let's talk about the Uzhgorod mayor-storyteller, who lived at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries.
  • In the center, I'll tell you where the local names come from: main street of Korzo, central square Svinsky market, city market Zeleny. In this part of Uzhgorod, you will also explore the architecture of the Austro-Hungarian period.
  • Like many coastal cities in Europe, Uzhgorod - city ​​of embankments… Walking along them, you will hear why one embankment is listed in the Guinness Book of Records and where we got the Japanese cherry blossoms from. I will also show you the colorful architecture. Czech quarter Galagov.

And not only The story of the city would be incomplete without the Jewish period, so explore synagogue buildings - Hasidic, Orthodox and Neologists. And I will help to understand the tragedy of this people from the active settlement of the city to the exodus at the end of 1944. We will finish the walk at the picturesque passage of the shoe-maker Bati, in whose "works" the whole Uzhgorod of the early 20th century walked

☕ And of course, you can't do without a coffee theme! Coffee in Uzhgorod is brewed everywhere and always of excellent quality - this tradition has been preserved since the Austro-Hungarian times, as are the custard cakes "tistechki". You will try them and relax with a cup of coffee in one of the city's kavyaren.
