Mini-sculpture “Celt”

In ancient times, the Transcarpathia The famous ancient opponents of the Roman Empire, the Celtic tribes, lived in this area. The Celts lived in these places for a long period of time – up to the 1st century BC. At that time, the Transcarpathian Celts founded a large settlement near the Galish and Lovachka mountains. At that time, it was the largest settlement on the territory of modern Ukraine. Most of the inhabitants of the settlement were artisans. This is confirmed by a large number of iron tools found by archaeologists at the settlement site. The settlement disappeared overnight. Apparently, the inhabitants of this settlement died as a result of an enemy attack.

On the slopes of the Galish and Lovachka mountains, man-made caves where the Celts lived have been preserved to this day. At the foot of the mountains is the famous ethno-estate “Celtic Yard”. Here you can taste ale, honey beer, sbiten and delicious Celtic dishes.

Detailed description of the mini-sculpture of the Mukachevo Celt

The mini-sculpture “Celt” was installed in Mukachevo 17 March 2015. It was created by Mykhailo Kolodko. The mini-sculpture was a gift to Mukachevo residents from Uzhgorod. It became the first mini-sculpture in Mukachevo. The unveiling ceremony was held solemnly. At the end, the monument was poured with beer for good luck. Despite all the traditions and superstitions, a few days later, on 22 March 2015, the sculpture was stolen! But to spite the thieves, the little Celt was made again and installed “tightly” so that the thieves could not steal the mini-masterpiece again.

The mini-sculpture “Celt” is located on the railing of the Mukachevo embankment, with Mount Lovachka in the background (GPS: 48.44376373 22.71705627).

The figure of the monument resembles the famous characters Asterix and Obelix. Their Mukachevo “comrade” is holding a Celtic sword. By the way, the original prototype of the Celtic sword is now kept in the historical museum Mukachevo Castle.

A Celtic who settled in Mukachevo is a blacksmith, because the craft of blacksmithing came to us unchanged from these immigrants.

Transcarpathians still use the inventions of the Celts. For example, the well-known bathing in vats is a Celtic bath, and it is their invention.

The Celtic influence has also been preserved in the language. For example, Transcarpathians call jam lekvar, but few people know that the word “lokvar” means jam in Celtic.
