The capital of former Subcarpathian Rus has a castle on the hill. Just like Prague, Brno and Bratislava – the other capitals of four lands of former Czechoslovakia. Užhorod castle is obviously the smallest one and the most moddest one, but it is a tourist magnet, too. The castle palace has although two faces. Some rooms are restored, the others have already seen much better days. In those most ugly is the exposition of Carpathian nature, in the better ones a historical exposition. Some information is even in English but not all. Who cannot read in Ukrainian or Hungarian would not learn much.

I enjoy visiting old castle ruins. Uzhhorod Castle is not that type of attraction. The walls are seen from above the city of Uzhhorod, but inside the castle walls which has been completely refurbishes are current exhibits of old documents and paintings. The only room which I felt was of interest - is the old chapel which contains old frescoes and newly painted icons. The people guarding the castle inside (guides) are not friendly - and some didn't speak the language of the country making it hard (impossible) to learn any information other than what I read online. Worth a visit only if you like museums inside of castle walls.

Lots to see here, most interesting is the collection of swords, rifles, and the interwar period. Nice views of the town as well. The museum in the dungeon area (15 UAH extra) is not for kids...

An ancient castle, which combines the spirit of the history of the city and the tradition of the outskirts. Here you can see the history of the formation of culture, traditions and spiritual development of the city. Visitors can also find out about the flora and fauna typical of the area. Near the central entrance to the castle is a cozy cafe with fragrant coffee and delicious traditional Transcarpathian dishes. You can also taste European cuisine, delicious desserts and dishes.

The castle is very old, from the 9-10 centuries, it is mentioned in the Gesta Hungarorum. It is connected with major historical events from the north-east part of medieval Hungary in connection with Poland-Lituania, Kievan Rus etc etc. The castle is conserving its 18 century aspect (Habsburg times). There are many exhibitions inside, specially the historical exhibition is interesting.
