Uzhhorod Castle

Tour description: The heart of the ancient city of Uzhhorod, Uzhgorod Castle is one of the most well-preserved defense structures of Ukraine, leading its long and glorious military history from the 10th century. For almost eleven subsequent centuries, the Uzhgorod castle was rebuilt several times, and in our days has undergone a large-scale restoration, thanks to which nowadays it is comparable in appearance to many popular European castles. In the Uzhgorod Castle, you will see almost ten-feet thick walls that are almost untouched by time, will walk around the owners' quarters (which were able to withstand the siege on their own), admire the 10-meter-wide moat and the folding bridge, and also see the museum's exposition. In addition, the castle offers wonderful views of the city and its surroundings, so it is strongly recommended for a visit.
