Volcanic lowlands - Berehovo
On the outskirts of Berehovo, you will find vineyards that have long been world-famous for their wines. The wines are rich in flavor and aroma. This is due to the volcanic rocks on which the grapes ripen and the Transcarpathian sun’s energy.

Walk along the historic street of the town - Korzo, visit the most famous temple of the city - Holy Cross Cathedral (1841), see the Roman Catholic Church of St. George (1775), explore one of the oldest castles in Ukraine (XIV century), visit the Transcarpathian Museum of folk architecture and life (Skansen) and be sure to join us in the visit to the village’s iconic tavern.
