A detour along the River Uzh embankment, with its fine row of lime trees leading towards the Central Pedestrian Bridge, with the old town on one side and busy Petőfi Sándor Square on the other, makes this enchanting town a must-see for a weekend and a wonderful introduction to this lesser known region.
Uzhgorod, formerly known as Ungvár, was part of Hungary before Trianon in 1920.
It is Transcarpathia’s largest city and three kilometres from Slovakia. This immediate inner area makes up the town’s social scene, where the “Uzhgorodets”, as they call themselves, like to be.
You may target your search to certain fields by changing the dropdown selection to the right of the 'Search' box from "All Fields." Use the "facets" to limit your searches.
These are the links at the left under the "Limit your search" heading, with categories such as "Record Type," "Language," and "Online." You may find "Record Type" to be particularly helpful in narrowing your search to certain type of record.
An advanced search is available by clicking the link "More Options (Advanced Search)".
If you were, for example, interested in searching across photographic records or document records only, excluding other record types, in the advanced search you can click on "Record Type" and select one or more type of records from the list to limit your results to those selected record types.
Collections Search also embodies a "geographic name expansion" feature.
Often the same place is referred through different names in different languages and various spellings and transliterations.For example, searching for "Lviv", "L'viv", "L'vov", "Lvov", "Lwow", or "Lemberg" will all bring you the same results.Similarly, searching for "Łódź", "Lodz", or "Litzmannstadt" will bring the same results, as will searching for "Munich", "München", or "Muenchen." Collections Search supports boolean queries including AND, NOT, and OR (which must be uppercase) and parentheses.Uzhgorod, or Ungvár as it is known by Hungarians, is an inspiringly pleasant place in western Ukraine.The varied architecture and culture give a vibrant atmosphere to this lively university town, which also has a touch of quaintness.Walking through the old town with its Baroque cathedrals around Korzo and Voloshin streets, on to a cobble-stoned lane towards the Greek Catholic Cathedral, on to the castle and the Transcarpathian outdoor Museum of Folk Architecture, is a real pleasure.
