A trip to the village of Mizhhirya

Until recently, the district center of Zakarpattia Oblast, and now just the village of Mizhhirya, is located in the middle of the Borzhavska Polonya at a distance of 154 kilometers from the regional center of the city Uzhhorod, between Kamyanka (1587 meters) and Kuk (1365 meters) mountains. From 1415 to 1953, Mizhhirya was called Volove. 9421 inhabitants live in Mizhhirya. The village is located in the Rika River valley. Motor roads run here Khust-Dolyna and Volovets-Mizhhirya. Distance to the nearest railway station Volovets – 32 kilometers.

Regarding the origin of the name of the village of Volove, there are two main legends. According to the first of them, in ancient times, the inhabitants of the villages on the site of Volovoy Soymy and Vuchkovo grazed oxen. First, they set up summer camps here, and later winter camps. That is how the village of Volove appeared. According to another legend, loggers were the first to appear on the site of present-day Mizhhirya, who were interested in the local coniferous forest, because deciduous trees grew downstream of the Rika River. Wood was delivered to the river through special wooden chutes called “valova”. It was from them that the name of the village of Volove came, and its first inhabitants were loggers.

The village of Volove has been known since the end of the 14th century. The first document in which Volove is mentioned as one of the possessions of the family of Hungarian feudal lords Urmezeev is dated 1415. Since 1947, Mizhhirya has been an urban-type settlement, a district center. In the 1980s, a timber processing plant, a factory of the “Electron” industrial association, an industrial plant, a food processing plant, 7 schools, professional technical and medical schools operated in Mizhhirya.

Today Mizhhirya is one of the tourist centers of the region. Hiking routes start here, there is an equipped ski track, sanatoriums, hotels, and camping sites operate here.
