Ukrainian Weekend: Uzhgorod

6/04/2016

 Hello again beautiful people! At the last weekend was my boyfriend's Birthday. My personal gift for him were book and... tickets for the trip to Uzhgorod.


 Uzhgorod is a city located in western Ukraine at the border with Slovakia and near the border with Hungary. It gets this special name from the Uzh River, which separates the city into two main parts.


 The architecture in Uzhgorod is very interesting and diverse. We found here synagogue (now the Philharmonic Orchestra), Roman Catholic church in Old city and old Castle.
 Uzhgorod Castle was built in a mixture of architectural styles and materials between the 13th and 18th centuries. Now castle is a museum.




 We saw here a huge amount of roses everywhere. Also a lot of lime trees are around the city. The linden alley is on the right bank of the river Uzh and the length of this alley is about 2.2 km. It's a perfect place for running or just walking by the river and the smell from the trees is really amazing  here.


 It is interesting that people speak different languages here. The reason is diverse population: Ukrainians, Russians, Hungarians, Slovaks and Romani.
 This trip was interesting and informational for us. And first time in our lives we saw mountains (The Carpathians).
