Uzhgorod has a lot of preserved architectural ensembles and unique houses - architectural monuments of state and local significance. Among the most captivating sacral buildings in Uzhgorod are the Holy Cross Cathedral and the elegant Roman Catholic Church of St. George, which was built on the ruins of a Lutheran church. During the tour you will cross a picturesque Pedestrian Bridge over the Uzh River and walk in the shades of trees through a lovely Linden Alley. You will explore the center of the city and its main street – Korzo. You’ll find a lot of gift shops, cafés and restaurants there and when the tour is over, you may visit them in your free time.

Uzhhorod Castle- one of the most ancient medieval fortifications on the territory of Ukraine. Despite its venerable age, it is perfectly preserved and is reckoned among the most famous and frequently visited castles in Ukraine. In its current form, the castle was rebuilt after 1322, when the town became a possession of the noble family of Drugeths.

From 1947 to nowadays, the collection of the Museum of Transcarpathian History, numbering over one hundred thousand unique exhibits, is located here. Museum offers detailed information on city and castle history. Moreover, the Museum keeps one of the largest collections of bronze items in Ukraine. Coins and cold steel and firearms, dated to the 14th – early 20th centuries, are of great value. Castle cellars feature the exposition «Torture Chamber,» which shows exhibits, recreated after medieval drawings and engravings. In addition, there is a tasting room for the famous Zakarpattia wines.

Near the Castle of Uzhgorod there is situated the open air Museum of the folk architecture.

Transcarpathian Museum of Folk Architecture and Life – a stylized ethnic village located in the heart of Uzhgorod. Original wooden buildings still stand here, representing the ethnic traditions of different nations that inhabited Transcarpatian region. The Museum has an original planning: all ancient buildings are joined together in one harmonic architectural ensemble, which fully corresponds to Transcarpathia region’s landscape. Skansen’s territory includes seven manors, six dwelling houses, buildings of ancient church, bell tower, school, and many household buildings: watermill, smithy, apiary and others. All local structures are true masterpieces of the folk architecture. The main treasure of the museum – St. Michael's wooden church from the 18th century, with its uncanny architecture.
