"The night of the 8th to the 9th of May will be remembered in our library for a long time! That night we not only celebrated a great event in the history of our people, but also were actively working to update the facade of the library" - the central city library reported. Public organizations the "Ukrainian Students' Union" and the "European Uzhgorod" put an attractive European face on the wall. The graphic design is so exciting that it is impossible to pass it by without appreciating this beauty; passersby respond positively to the new look: take pictures, shoot videos, ask questions, share impressions and even, in spite of the weekend, come to register in the library. The library thanks the organizers Istvan Tsap and Mykola Geletei for their work and invites Uzhgorod residents to appreciate the "updated" library both from outside, and inside.

Will "Pogorelov's Fountain" play again? (Photofact)

The former flowerbed, which after the "hyped reconstruction" is sometimes called "Pogorelov's fountain," will finally have water. At least it seems so.

In the group "Uzhgorod" on facebook, one of the users Ferenc Baki posted a photo of the square and wrote: "Pogorelov's Fountain" is already being dismantled...". But he was wrong. According to sources of Uzhgorod.in, they are replacing a damaged pipe in the fountain and preparing it for launching.

Recall that before the opening of the fountain (which, frankly, most of the time is empty, rather than playing) on the occasion of the day of the city, the city mayor Pogorelov said that only patronage funds had been used for the construction - about 400,000 UAH. But soon after the launch of the fountain, the decoration marble crumbs started dropping off and various other problems would occur.

Meanwhile, discussing the topic in social networks, Uzhgorod residents mention the "historic" truly beautiful fountain, which was turned into a flowerbed - they say, there were even fish there. Some support the demolition of the new fountain, because, they say, it is unaesthetic. Now, the water utility workers are working there, and whether the "Pogorelov's fountain" will start playing in the coming days is for now an open question.
