Ruins of the Templar castle

Serednie is best known for the ruins of the Templar castle, founded in the 12th and 13th centuries. It is recognised as the easternmost stronghold of the order that dominated the Middle Ages and is considered to be almost the only surviving Romanesque building in the Silver Land.

Wine cellars in Serednye

Recreation in Serednye is inseparable from the village's business card, which is its wine-growing products. The Carpathian climate is perfectly conducive to the flourishing of farming. Already in the Middle Ages, large areas were cleared for the development of new land.

Today, the total length of the dungeons is almost 4,000 metres. The dungeons are now occupied by the Leanka winery (named after the famous Serednyansky variety, which means "girl" in Hungarian).

The most famous brand is the "Rose of Transcarpathia". In 1966, it was awarded a gold medal at an international exhibition in Bulgaria. It is the most expensive among the Serbian brands.

Holy Protection Monastery

The Intercession Monastery is located in the village of Rakoshyno, Mukachevo district, Transcarpathian region, not far from the city of Mukachevo. The history of this monastery dates back to the 1920s. At that time, an Orthodox church was built on the site of the present monastery. The author of the church project was Vsevolod Kolomatsky, an emigrant from Naddniprianshchyna Ukraine.

Bunker "Arpad Line"

During the Second World War, the Hungarian government built a military defence line in the northeastern Carpathians - the Arpad Line. It consisted of several belts. The first one was in the Carpathian region, to protect the approaches to the main Carpathian watershed ridge, which was called the Hunyadi border. The second one ran along the tops of the main Carpathian ranges and consisted of trenches and dugouts - the so-called St Vasyl's line. The third - along narrow river valleys and near large settlements, included concrete fortifications and mechanical obstacles - the Arpad Line.

The Arpad Line was 120 km wide in some places and 350 km long. It consisted of 439 open firing points, 750 pillboxes, 99 strongholds, and 343 pillboxes. In the village of Kolochava, Mizhgirya district, there is an Arpad Line Museum, which very well recreates the spirit of that great war.

Church of the Intercession in Kostryno

The village of Kostryno is home to the Church of the Intercession of the Holy Virgin. Visiting the ancient Boyko wooden church will bring a lot of pleasure to true connoisseurs of architectural masterpieces.

St Michael's Church in the village of Uzhok

In the village of Uzhok, you can visit the Church of St Michael the Archangel. This monument is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Uzhotskyi pass

The best option for travelling to Transcarpathia is through the Uzhotskyi pass, which reaches 883 metres in height.

This is the shortest road to the capital of the Transcarpathian region, Uzhgorod (80 kilometres from the pass). The road is rich in picturesque landscapes. In addition, there is excellent asphalt quality and less traffic congestion - trucks choose other routes.


Every year, Vynogradiv district is visited by many tourists who find a wide variety of entertainment and leisure activities in this hospitable region. There are many architectural monuments to see here, the oldest of which is the ruins of Kankiv Castle. Regular kayaking and rafting trips are organised for tourists in Vynogradiv district. In addition, there is a unique opportunity to improve your health with local mineral waters. There are three types of mineral waters in Vynogradiv district: "Teplytsia", which is bitter-salty, highly mineralised thermal water; Olehivska, which is low-mineralised silicon hydrocarbonate calcium-sodium water; and Kushnytska, which is low-mineralised boron hydrocarbonate sodium therapeutic and table water.

Kankiv Castle

If you walk up the path to the remains of the Kankiv Castle, you will see an incredible panorama of Vynogradiv. The mighty lonely Chorna Gora remains behind, and the walls of the ancient castle are visible in front. Nowadays, it is difficult to find out where certain parts of the fortress used to be. Almost nothing remains of the castle walls, nor of the five corner towers.

Buffalo farm

We suggest visiting the only Ukrainian black buffalo farm, where special measures are being taken to increase the population of these fascinating animals. At the farm, you will have the opportunity not only to meet the buffaloes, but also to enjoy products made from their milk.

During the tour, you will be able to taste fresh milk, sour cream, butter and even real buffalo mozzarella, which is made from the milk of these majestic animals. You will have the opportunity to learn more about the production process of these products and the specifics of the farm.

Gothic wooden church in the village of Chetfalva

The main treasure of Chetfalva is the Gothic wooden tower of the XVIII century, next to which stands a small, one-windowed stone church of the XIV century, which was reconstructed in 1753.


The city of Irshava is located in the geographical centre of Transcarpathia. It does not boast a large number of interesting historical monuments. However, all fans of the Ukrainian narrow-gauge railway are happy to visit this city to take a trip on the Beregovo-Kushnytsya railway line, which passes through Irshava. The same narrow-gauge line runs from Irshava to Vynogradiv. The picturesque landscapes of the Carpathian nature will slowly pass before your eyes during a trip in a narrow-gauge railway.

It houses more than 850 exhibits, including Neolithic stone axes, regional banknotes, kerosene lamps, ancient clothes and footwear of local residents, documents and postcards of Carpathian Ukraine, an ATO exposition, etc.

Borzhava narrow-gauge railway

The turning point in the history of Irshava was 1911, when Beregovo, Sevliush (Vynogradiv) and Irshava were connected by a narrow-gauge so-called economic railway. Today it is known as the Borzhavka narrow-gauge railway. The railway was the main impetus for the growth and economic development of the town.

Dovge village

The village of Dovge is the epitome of religious tolerance, with 4 churches of different faiths located on the central square. It is a unique place worth noting for its favourable atmosphere of diversity and understanding.

In addition, Dovhe is famous for another interesting building - the XVIII century palace-fortress, which is a unique example of medieval architecture. This fortress is the only one of its kind in Europe and attracts tourists with its elegant architecture.

Tavern-museum "Detsa u Notarya"

"Detsa u Notarya" is not just a restaurant, it is not so much the cuisine as the atmosphere that is important here: there is a kind of museum of folk humour, created in 1995 by the famous Transcarpathian humourist and historian Pavlo Chuchka. The restaurant-museum hosts the international humour festival "Carpathian verbiage". The name of the restaurant is very simple: "detsa" means "one hundred grams" and "notarya" means "notary". The sign at the entrance to the restaurant tells us that this house was built for a state notary in 1940.

Thermal pools "Zolota Gora"

Healing and nourishing thermal water emerges from the depths of the heart of our planet and enters the thermal pools of Zolota Gora at a pleasant temperature of 29 to 39°C.
