    Lemkos, an ethnic group of the Eastern Carpathians

    by om_212 Updated Aug 14, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lemkos in original folk-costume (photo: wikipedia)

    Favorite thing: Lemkos is an ethnic Ukrainian group (along with Boykos, Hutsyls, etc.), which traditionally occupied the territory of the Lower Beskid range of the Carpathian Mountains.

    The name "Lemko" derives from the common expression 'Lem', which can mean "but", "only", or "like" in the Lemko dialect, which is used that often that I can call my people - "people with a lot of buts" (please do not confuse 'but' with a butt ;) Lemkos have its language, a dialect of the Rusyn language, its distinctive culture and arts (Shelestovo church is just one tiny example, while Andy Warhol remains the most famous person of a Lemko origin), and its religion (Greek Catholics).

    Lemkivschyna, once a solid territoryundre the Austro-Hungarian Empire, lost its integrity in 1918. people, who once belonged to one group, are currently split between three countries – Ukraine, Poland and Slovakia. more info on Lemkos is available at wikipedia

    Historical centre

    by IngaA Written Sep 20, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: As usual, the most "visited" place is the city centre. Romantic narrow streets, ancient buildings, little bars and Uzh river.
    I am sure, you will enjoy the little promenad in the centre of Uzhhorod.

    Fondest memory: I just had a good time there

  • Visit in Uzhhorod

    by shmulikl2 Written Dec 16, 2009

    Favorite thing: Thanks, that were very helpful, in fact, I was born in Uzhhorod, left the city and Ukraine 37 years ago, about age 14. I speak flowing Ukrainian and Russian and good at reading in both languages. I would have no problem with language. I'm looking for updated information for car renting or local transportation, and the best way to get from Europe to Uzhhorod.
    Thank you and all those people who are helping!!!
