Uzhgorod is an administrative center of the Zakarpattia Region and the largest city. It stands on the banks of the Uzh river which gave the city its name. There is a state border between Ukraine and Slovakia within the city. We spent the night in the Praha hotel (booking.com).

Uzhgorod is a small, compact and beautiful city. Japanese cherry trees - sakuras - grow on its streets. There are crowds of tourists here in April who come to watch the sakuras blossom. Besides, every year the "Zakarpatske Bozhole" wine fest is held here.

The most beautiful place is the central part near the pedestrian bridge.

Behind the synagogue is an abandoned train. These is the remains of the shortest children's railway in Ukraine.

In a small street Girchychne zerno (Mustard seed) is the only in the Carpathian region restaurant of Georgian cuisine. Fans of khinkali have to visit this place. By the way, we cannot recommend much-touted restaurant "Detsa u Notara" due to extremely slow service (over two hours!).

Theatre Square - the heart of the city.

Uzh river flows through the whole city. There are paved embankments and green areas which are ideal for walks along its banks.

Another new landmark of the city is a confectionery «Valentin & Valentina Shtefanyo» (Dukhnovich str., 16.). Be sure to visit this place and try macarons, they are better here than in Paris, trust us. You can also try an Uzhgorod cake.
