Let’s walk the streets of Mukachevo

Mukachevo is a town located in the center of Zakarpattia region. It is an important industrial and cultural center standing on the Latoritsa River, about 42 km from Uzhgorod.

Due to its very convenient geographical location (40-50 km from the border with Hungary and Slovakia, and 90-100 km from Romania and Poland), Mukachevo is a major transportation hub. This relatively small town is worth a visit to see its historic center and castle. Photos by: camrador.
