Usually, this kind of trip takes a couple of days, and in 2 days you can have a great time, walking among the blooming magnolias and try a great coffee. By the way, Uzhgorod is really the coffee capital, here coffee is delicious in any cafe.
To get acquainted with the cultural heritage of the city, it will take a little more time, at least day 4, but if there is more time in reserve, pay attention to the attractions around, and there are really many. These are cozy parks in the middle of the mountains, thermal springs, castles, tasting rooms and more.

In the spring

Сакура в Ужгороді

A walk around the city on the river is interesting at any time of the year, but the most popular time is spring. At this time of year, almost the entire center is covered with beautiful color and aroma of sakura and magnolias. This most beautiful event usually begins in mid-April, sometimes in May. Be sure to come in the spring, sakura blossoms will leave you with a lot of positive emotions and a mountain of cool shots.

As a resident of Uzhgorod, I and my family really did not get tired of walking along the waterfront, it is very comfortable and interesting, and at any time of year it is beautiful.
In the spring, lindens, sakura trees and magnolias are raging, at this time the smells around are just gorgeous!

 The best time for sakura and magnolias to bloom is from mid-April to early May. 

Due to the fact that the promenade is not far from the city, the entrance is convenient and there are no problems with parking around. Along the promenades it is comfortable to walk with children of any age and there are convenient paths for scootering, skateboarding, cycling and more. There are also many benches and pretty good views around.

The center is really not far, where you can go to eat and warm up in a cozy cafe, if the weather for walks is not very good.

My favorite is the “Cactus”, a restaurant right next to the center and the waterfront. “Cactus” has a “wild west” style with very tasty cuisine and beer with absolutely adequate prices.

Архитектура Ужгорода

The architecture of Uzhgorod is very similar to Europe, because most of the city’s existence, it was not Ukrainian. If you are interested, you can learn more about it in the blog “Uzhgorod is the pearl of the Carpathians

Uzhgorod is a multinational city, there are Hungarian and Slovak schools in the city, in the photo it is Slovak, it is located not far from the center, towards Calvary.

Adults will be very interesting to walk towards Calvary and climb up, and from there gorgeous views of the surrounding area.

Children will most likely be bored walking around the city, so you can go with the children to the “Castle Park”, and there from the Philharmonic, along the waterfront you can ride a children’s train.

The park itself has a lot of attractions and entertainment, there are cafes, benches and even a stadium with a magnificent view of the mountains.

Entertainment in Uzhgorod

In summer, go deeper into different parts of Uzhgorod, it’s really cool. If you walk on your own, then walk around Uzhgorod – that’s it, you can move away from the center towards Bozdosh Park or banal – walk towards Uzhgorod Castle, and this is the highest point of the central part of the city, it more than 200 meters above sea level.

If you have a quadcopter, you can shoot good videos from there, the main thing at the takeoff is not to get into the electrical wires.

Of course, travel more often with families and how to be with children during their stay in Uzhgorod?
In fact, it is such a problem-free city, where it is not scary to let go of a child’s hand and let him run, and most cafes are equipped with either children’s trampolines or children’s tables. Don’t you believe? Check it out for yourself!

In summer there are interesting events, for example, the Uzhgorod Regatta on the river Uzh.
What it is?
Teams gather and the competition is held on specific vessels: from rafts made of bottles, to boats made of cast iron bathtubs and toilets. Believe me, this must be seen live and be sure to bring a camera or video camera, and be located near the pedestrian bridge.

 Usually this event starts in late July.

If you walk towards Bozdosh Park, you can find a mineral spring with natural soda water and a high iron content.

Or in the direction of Pidzamkovy Park, where there is a lot of children’s entertainment, and adults will find it interesting to look at an old and large tree – the Western Platan, its homeland – North America. According to Terletsky V., Fodor S. sycamore sapling was imported from Italy in 1610 by Count Druget (then the Lord of Uzhgorod Castle). This is the original specimen introduced to Central Europe. It is called the “Memorial Tree of Transcarpathia”.

 Diameter up to 1.7 m, height 22 m.

In autumn

Along the promenades and near the pedestrian bridge, in autumn there are always various fun festivals:

  • Uzhhorod Day in October;
  • Golden Autumn Fair, October;
  • And the most popular – the holiday of young wine “Transcarpathian Beaujolais”.

Connoisseurs of romance and autumn colors will enjoy the festival of young wine.
The Beaujolais Nouveau or the New Beaujolais, a young wine, is celebrated in France every year on the third Thursday in November. In Uzhgorod – the third week of November.

Walking around the city, you can not miss, right in the center, on Koryatovich Square, a very old Adam’s tree (paulownia). There are not many such trees in Ukraine. When it blooms, it is covered with flowers of delicate purple color, very similar to bells.

Other paulownias grow on Voloshyn Street and Svobody Avenue, all of which have different colors of flowers.

Of course, you should not forget to visit Uzhgorod Castle and the museum “open-air museum” next to this castle. And then from there, literally in the 5th minute, the Uzhhorod Botanical Garden was located.

If you are tired of walking or want to eat well, on the same street of Olbracht, there is an interesting cafe, which has been operating since the early 20th century, with good cuisine and delicious beer.

In winter

Since the city is really touristy, here you can find quite cozy cafes of various themes and destinations. There is a cafe with its own brewing of several types of beer, an excellent dessert cafe from a famous confectioner – Stefanio. Coffee was mentioned earlier, but it is worth remembering that coffee in Uzhgorod is just bombastic!

Uzhgorod is rich in its history, because for 1000 years of existence a lot has happened and there have been many different rulers. Only after the Second World War Uzhhorod became part of Transcarpathian Ukraine.
This means that the majority of the population speaks other languages. Popular here: Hungarian, Slovak, Romanian, Russian and Ukrainian. And indeed almost every resident understands all these languages.

Since the city is rich in history, of course there are quite interesting museums in the city.
Below is the main list of museums in Uzhgorod with links to their detailed description:

By the way, Uzhhorod used to be called Ungvar..

Closer to Hungary is just a great place to grow grapes. It’s no secret that those regions are famous for their winemakers, it’s about the city Beregovo and about Berehiv district. Wine connoisseurs are well aware of Hungarian wines, they are worthy of attention, and Beregovsky district was not only Hungary, a lot of Hungarians still live here.

The city on the river Uzh also has its heroes in winemaking, there are whole tasting rooms, where they will be happy to tell you about their wines, as well as hold a tasting.
The photo shows the popular Shardone tasting room on Voloshyn Street.
