In the shadow of the castle walls of Uzhgorod fortress is a unique Museum-Skansen. During the 1960s and 70s, two dozen wooden buildings of the XVIII-XX centuries were moved from the villages of the Transcarpathian region to the territory of the Museum. This is one of the first open-air museums or skansens in Ukraine. It began operation on June 27, 1970. The Museum is located not only as an “exhibition of achievements” of folk architecture of Transcarpathia, but also as a small independent village.
On the area of four hectares there are samples of housing of Transcarpathians from lowland and foothill regions – dolinian, Hungarian and Romanian population of the region. Housing of the inhabitants of Transcarpathia: Boyko, Lemke and Hutsuls,as well as some technical (water mill, water mortar-cloth mill,forge) and public buildings (Church, school ,tavern), as well as structures of small architectural forms (wells, beehives, fences). The interior of each house is recreated in detail. In total, the Museum has more than 15,000 exhibits.
The most valuable residential structures located in the Museum include the following: the house from the village Yasinya Keveliva built in the middle of the XVIII century from split in half large ash logs; Hutsul CET the mid-nineteenth century that researchers found in the village Stebnyi Rakhovsky district; XVIII century hut from the village of Tibava on Calamine,which is known for the fact that it was most likely the birthplace of the founder of Bulgarian studies Yuri Ivanovich gutsa-Venelin; a wooden tavern of the XIX century, which operated in the village of Verkhny Bystry Intermountain region. The pearl of the Museum’s exposition is wooden Church from the village of Shelestova, which was dedicated to Archangel Michael and built in the Baroque-tent style in 1777. This example of sacred architecture has been moved from place to place twice in its history. In 1927, the Church was moved to Mukachevo, and in 1974, he got into the Uzhhorod Skansen.
