The smithy-Museum “Gamora»

In the village of Lisichevo, irshavsky district (mentioned since the XIII century, the population is over 3 thousand inhabitants), the only operating water forge in Europe-the Gamora Museum on the Lisichantsi river. This modest at first glance long one-story building with a wicker fence is a living piece of history. The name of the forge, built in the first half of the XIX century on the site of the old paper mill of count Teleki, comes from the German word Hammer (hammer). Transcarpathians still call big hammers scales. #кузнягамора

Jews in Transcarpathia

Jewish settlement of Transcarpathia began in the XV century, but most of the Jews moved to our region in the XVIII century. They moved here from Galicia, where overpopulation, political unrest and constant persecution made their life unbearable. Transcarpathia at that time was very depopulated due to the war of 1703-1711 and could accept a large number of immigrants. As early as 1787, 6,311 Jews inhabited the komitata of Ung, Bereg, Ugocha, and Maramorosh. In the first half of the XIX century, immigration from Galicia took place on an even larger scale. Further growth of migration processes and a high birth rate led to a significant increase in the Jewish population. In 1910, the Jewish communities of the above-mentioned four comitates numbered 128,791 people.

Classification of Transcarpathian castles
