Once upon a time, she settled in the valley of the river Grass-snake Turkish Princess, “in combination” also an evil witch. For her cruelty, people called her a bad Girl. When the Princess decided to build an impregnable Castle on a high mountain, lime for strength ordered to extinguish not only egg whites (which was a common practice in the Middle ages), but also mother’s milk. The crying was heard all over the valley, babies were sick and dying of hunger, and the Bad girl only laughed. And when the castle was built, the Princess began to sit at the window and watch the passers-by. Anyone who walked past the castle and did not bow, did not take off his hat, then risked their lives for such disrespect – the soldiers of the witch could grab the recalcitrant and cut off his head. People began to avoid the castle.
At that time, a simple worker named Vanya lived in a nearby village and boasted that he would become a king and kill a Bad Girl. His master laughed: “Then you will be king when my staff blooms.” He shouldn’t have laughed: soon the stick turned into a blooming rose Bush. People in Uzhgorod at that time, were choosing a king, arguing, and could not find a worthy one. They decided to rely on Fate, threw a Golden crown in the air – and it fell on the head of Vanya, who happened to pass by. The aristocrats were outraged by this course of events, so they abandoned the crown again… And so they repeated several times. But each time it fell on the head of a simple worker Ivanko. So Vanya became king and went with his army to Bad Girl. And he was cunning: he ordered a herd of cows to go ahead in the dark, and between the horns of each cow burned a small pile of hay, and on the neck of the sound bell.
The Bad Girl was awakened by a terrible glow and roar. The Princess was afraid, and jumped on her own horse and rushed to Uzhgorod. But Vanya noticed it and gave chase. In the oak forest, the Bad girl caught her hair on a branch, and the horse, noticing nothing, galloped on. This is where Vanya killed the witch. A mound was placed over her body, which still stands in the valley. And Transcarpathian mystics are sure that it is not by chance that car accidents often occur near Nevitsky. It was at this point that Vanya caught up with the evil maiden, and the offended soul of the Princess still avenges her death.
According to the second legend, the castle is called Nevitsky because here in case of enemy attacks brought Uzhgorod girls-brides (on Ukrainian – nevist). Finally, according to the third legend, the owner of the Nevitsky castle Stubbornly repulsed the Duke of Goro’s bride and, to calm the anger of a rival who took the fortress in a long siege, promised him: if he had a daughter, he would give her in marriage to the Duke at the age of 16. A daughter was born in Upora, and his wife died during childbirth. After 17 years came to this place the old man Goro. He was forced to keep his word and agreed to Goro’s marriage with His daughter. The young daughter of Upora, when she found out what kind of bridegroom her father had chosen for her, threw herself down from the castle tower in despair and died.
