Fentsyk Square is one of the most imposing places in Uzhgorod. Its construction began in the middle of the 19th century. Here, almost every building is of historical significance.
At the far eastern end of the square stands the largest and most beautiful Jewish synagogue of Transcarpathia. Next to it, on the bank of the river Uzh, is one of Ukraine’s first children’s railways. It starts its route at the city center and follows the bank of the river to a wonderful old park, named Pidzamkovyy (“Under the castle”).
