Uzhgorod can be rightly considered the “Little Paris” of Transcarpathia. Despite the fact that Uzhgorod is the smallest of all regional centers of Ukraine, it has more than enough historical, architectural and natural sites for one weekend trip. The town at different periods in time was under the rule of Czechoslovakia and Hungary, which unsurprisingly has left a unique imprint. Today Uzhgorod has been recognized for its significant architectural heritage – including architectural monuments of national and regional importance.
The central part consists of residential areas built mostly in the 19th century. The vast majority of buildings are low-rise and don’t exceed three stories.
In any season Uzhgorod is open to travelers. When on vacation in Uzhgorod you can visit museums, theatres, a medieval castle, walk down the linden alley or just set out to investigate small streets.
