  • Quite nice place with lots of authentic cabins, mainly from Western Ukraine. I wish there were more leisures (currently the is just a cafe and that's all).
  • The Museum of Folk Architecture and Life in Uzhgorod, Ukraine  is an open air museum, consisting of architectural monuments of old Transcarpathian villages, and examples of the oldest and most common forms of folk arts and crafts. Here you can find some examples of houses of Transcarpathians lived in lowland and mountain areas. Interesting to see how Ukrainians lived a while ago, how their clothes, houses looked like, their dishes and other house items. You can walk inside of those houses and make some pictures. There is also a beautiful wooden church. There is some admission for entrance, around 1-2 dollars
