Mukachevo is a small town in the west of Ukraine, but historically it has been at the crossroads of many paths, and therefore it has a very rich and interesting cultural heritage. And we are convinced that everyone will be able to find something interesting here, because even today the city continues to develop and renew itself.


If you are looking for places to go and things to see in Mukachevo, we suggest you check out our selection of the most picturesque and interesting places.


Historical heritage of Mukachevo: castles, monasteries, town halls


Mukachevo is home to an incredible number of historical buildings that are fascinating in their appearance and, most importantly, in their history. Here you can not only learn something new about Ukraine, but also "touch" Ukrainian history.


In the central part of the city, we recommend visiting the City Hall and the Rakoczy White Palace, which are two historical gems of Mukachevo. 




On the outskirts of the city, you can find the Mukachevo St. Nicholas Monastery, and we strongly recommend seeing it with your own eyes. In addition to its history, this monastery has a very unusual location and appearance.




And, of course, the pearl of western Ukraine is Palanok Castle, which stands on a 68-meter-high extinct volcano. This place is definitely worth visiting at least once in your life. And if you decide to look at this unique castle not only from the outside but also from the inside, you can additionally enjoy the museum exhibits located in the halls of the palace.

Unusual places in Mukachevo


Mukachevo can surprise you not only with its rich cultural and historical heritage, but also with some other highlights. For example, one of them is the "crazy sakura" that blooms several times a year. It should be noted that on January 9, 2024, the Mukachevo City Council reported that the tree had unexpectedly blossomed. The post notes that for the first time the sakura began to bloom "out of season" in 2024.

Another highlight of the city is the "goose route" - three sculptures: a photographer goose, a tourist goose, and a brewer goose.




And near Mukachevo you can find a unique tea plantation, where a new type of tea has been bred since 1945.
