Inexpensive vacation in Uzhgorod is no less interesting. The city is beautiful in itself: just go to the center to see the ancient buildings and immerse yourself in history. Take a walk along the promenades, there are six of them! For the brave, you should cross the suspension bridge and get to Bozdos Park. The park is so large that visitors often take it for a forest. In autumn Uzhhorod is especially beautiful: the trees become crimson-yellow, there are trees painted completely crimson. Do not put it into words, you need to see it at least once. Embankments and the park are the best places to relax in Uzhgorod: many citizens on the waterfront are brisk walking, running, cycling, scooters, gyroscooters. More extreme types of recreation, on motorcycles, ATVs, are held in the park or in the woods on the outskirts of the city.

Features of rest in the spring and summer

In the spring of April the first miracle blooms – magnolias, in almost every yard of a private house in the center there is this beautiful tree. In the second half of April, when the magnolia is still in bloom, sakura begins to bloom. And already at the beginning of summer the Linden Alley blooms and smells. A sweet walk of more than 2 km will be remembered for a long time.

In summer we recommend visiting the Uzhhorod Botanical Garden. In the garden there are about five thousand species of plants, including those known in Transcarpathia: Hungarian lilac, Carpathian cornflower and rare beauty – edelweiss flower. Botsad workers advise to come from June 10 to August 15, when everything is in full swing. But at other times of the year there is something to look at: landscaping is closely monitored.

If you like active recreation, go for ATV rides around. Forests and mountain roads are what you need to dissipate and recharge your batteries. Here we advise you to take a tour of the historic surroundings, which can not be reached without a guide.

Features of winter recreation

Lumshori

Winter in Uzhgorod is not a problem at all. It is usually quite warm with a positive temperature.

So you can safely go for a walk along the waterfront. Many birds can be seen on the river, mostly ducks and seagulls, but white swans also stay here for the winter.

All museums in Uzhgorod are quite close to each other, which is very convenient in winter. After a walk through the museums and the city, you can plan a trip to the thermal waters of Kosino or cook in the tubs in Lumshory – this is the place where you want to return.

For the New Year holidays, houses for the New Year’s fair are brought to the center. Here you can drink hot mulled wine, buy wine, honey and other local products and buy Christmas souvenirs. And Christmas is a time of legends. It’s time to take a tour of the mystical places of Uzhgorod, to make the weekend mysterious and fabulous.

How to get to Uzhgorod

The cheapest way to come to Uzhgorod from Lviv is by train: it goes once a day. A train ticket is a bit more expensive, it runs several times a day. Buses run, but they are not often chosen: on a trip with children, the road along the mountain serpentine is almost impossible. There is a night train from Kyiv, the journey takes 12-16 hours.

Uzhhorod is a border town, so it is convenient to combine a trip here with a return from European countries. For example, the Slovak Kosice is about 100 km away – a few hours by bus.
