Nevytskyi Castle

Once upon a time, a Turkish princess settled in the valley of the Uzh river, “by coincidence” also an evil witch. People called her the Bad Maiden for her cruelty. When the princess decided to build an impregnable fortress on a high mountain, she ordered lime to be slaked not only with egg whites (which was a common practice in the Middle Ages) but also with mother’s milk for strength. Crying echoed throughout the valley, babies were sick and dying of hunger, and the Bad Virgin only laughed.

And when the castle was built, the princess began to sit by the window and watch passers-by. Whoever walked past the castle and did not bow, did not take off his hat, risked paying with his life for such disrespect – the witch’s soldiers could seize the recalcitrant and cut off his head. People began to bypass the castle.

Legends of Nevytskyi Castle

In those days, a simple worker Ivanko lived in a nearby village, who boasted that he would become king and kill the Bad Maiden. His master laughed: “Then you will become king when my thorn blossoms.” He laughed in vain: soon the thorn turned into a blooming rose bush. And in Uzhhorod at that time they were just choosing a king, they argued, they could not find a worthy one. They decided to rely on Fate, threw a golden crown into the air – and it fell on the head of Ivanka, who happened to be passing by. The aristocrats were outraged by this course of events, so they threw the crown again… And they repeated this several times. But every time it fell on the head of a simple worker Ivanka. So Ivanko became the king and went with his army to the Bad Maiden. And he was cunning: he ordered a herd of cows to go forward in the dark, and between the horns of each cow a small bundle of hay was burning, and a bell jingled around its neck.

Bad Maiden woke up from a terrible roar and flirt. The princess was frightened, jumped on her horse and rushed to Uzhhorod. But Ivanko noticed her and ran after her. In the oak forest, the Bad Maiden caught her hair on a branch, and the horse, not noticing anything, galloped on. This is where Ivanko killed the witch. A mound was built over her body, which still stands in the valley. Transcarpathian mystics are sure: it is no accident that car accidents often occur near Nevytskyi. It was at this place that Ivanko caught up with the Bad Maiden, and the offended soul of the princess avenges her death to this day.

Other legends

According to the second legend, the castle is called Nevytskyi because Uzhhorod girls – brides – were brought here in case of enemy attacks.

Finally, according to the third legend, the owner of the Nevytskyi castle, Upor, took away a bride from Duke Goro and, in order to appease the anger of his rival, who took the fortress under 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 to Upor, and his wife died during childbirth. 17 years later, Grandfather Goro came to Nevitske. Upor was forced to keep his word and agreed to the marriage of Horo with his daughter. Upora’s young daughter, having learned which groom her father had chosen for her, threw herself down from the castle tower in despair and died.
