The surroundings of Berehovo have long been known all over the world for their wines, which have a wonderful aroma and rich flavor. This is due to the volcanic rocks on which the grapes grow and the energy of the sun because this place has the largest number of sunny days in Transcarpathia.
The first mention of this eternal border town on the river Uzh dates back to 872; it will fascinate even the most demanding tourist with its charm and flavour. Walk along the historic street of the city — Korzo, see the most famous temple of the city — the Cathedral of the Holy Cross (1841), the Roman Catholic Church of St. George (1775), one of the oldest castles in Ukraine (XIV century) and the Transcarpathian Museum of Folk Architecture and Life (Skansen).

You no longer need to go to Japan to admire the sakura blossoms, you can do it in the historic Czech center of Uzhgorod. Sakura Alley in the town above Uzh was planted in 1923 and every year hundreds of trees bloom here from the second half of April to the first days of May, depending on the weather, turning the old streets into a paradise garden. Sakura is also called the Japanese cherry, it is a symbol of female youth and beauty, and there is a belief that those who see the flowering of 35 trees will improve their health and make one wish come true.
At the foot of the largest valley of the Ukrainian Carpathians Runa, there is a balneotherapy resort of Lumshory, known since the XVII century.
