The magnificent palace garden impresses with rare tree species planted around a decorative lake. Today, the Karpaty sanatorium is located on the territory of the Shenborn Palace. After a short journey, we reach the Palanok Mukachevo Castle, which is located on a 68-meter-high volcanic mountain. The castle was first mentioned in documents in the 11th century, but its present appearance was formed in the 14th-17th centuries. Palanok Castle witnessed and participated in many historical events.

In addition to the castle in Mukachevo, the following are also worth noting: the Town Hall (1904), the Church of St. Martyna (1904) with the Gothic Chapel of St. Joseph (XIV century), the Palace of Princes Rakotsi (1667), etc. Then - moving almost to the Hungarian border, namely to the city of Berehove. This almost thousand-year-old city, the bulk of the population of which is made up of Hungarians, is famous for its healing thermal waters.
