The museum of Folk Architecture and traditions (I prefer to call it scansen) in Uzhgorod is the smallest, but the coziest and the most well-kept among his kin (Pyrohovo, Kyiv, Shevchenkivsky Hai, Lviv, etc.) in Ukraine. It ¡s located on the territory of the XIX century cemetery once called 'the Graveyard Garden' (I find this to be so ironic - to...more
In addition to the beautiful Shelestovo church, one can also see here a typical hutsyul-style house called grazhda. Unlike most of wooden houses in Ukraine visible to a passerby, grazhdas were hidden and resembled a simple wooden fortress, where actual house and households were built and linked into a closed square, mostly to protect from wild...more

When ur in Ukraine u have to buy water to drink and to brush ur teeth.
Bottles with or withous gas are cheap (1 or 1,5 grivna (0,20 eurocent) per 1 ltr. bottle)and u can get them almost everywhere on the markets and in some shops.
Take ur own medine with u and a medicinecart from home prefarable in latin..
There is a central Hospital, there are "Apotheka" were u can buy simple things like asperine.
Warm clothings are needed in winter it can be very cold brrrrrrrrr.........
As for ur money: people are very poor, so dont wear to much luxury stuff, put ur wallet behind ur sweater or coat and take good care of valuable stuff.
Locals are very friendly and nice people but if u dont speak Ukrainian take a small dictionary with u, older generation do speak some german and the younger English.
On the picture one of the many bad toilets at the Central City Hospital ((
This 1 i took when i was visiting this department as this is one of our projects.
Every room with 2 or 3 beds have such toilet and a bathtub as well, also in bad shape.
U might see almost such toilets on the markets or small cities, in some good hotels there will be better and cleaner ones.

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.
