This town is the main center of Hungarian culture in Zakarpattia, the Hungarians make up about half of the town’s population. That’s why besides the Ukrainian, the Hungarian language is common here and has the official status of a regional language. Berehove on Google Maps. Photos by: neo7777vitaha.
