Tour with "demons" (PHOTOS)
Yesterday, October 31, on Helloween evening a mystical tour took place in Uzhgorod. Exactly at 20.12 the tour symbolically started from Uzhgorod Kalwaria Cemetery, namely from the monument to Jan Nepomuk - the patron saint of the city. The tour of demonological locations of Uzhgorod was conducted by Victor Opalenyk. The guide was accompanied by a gloomy assistant and carried an umbrella inside of which an eerie light was burning. It gave the tour a special, mystical atmosphere.
A lot of people gathered to listen mystical stories about long-known Uzhgorod characters and former celebrities. Mostly they were students and youth. Many boys and girls on the occasion painted their faces or wore masks and turned into various demonic creatures.
During the tour everyone had the opportunity to take a fresh discover of lives of Erdelyi, Bath, Earl Bercheni and other historical characters of Uzhgorod. All the stories that were heard this evening, according to the organizers, were "at the boundary of reality and legend." But all of them were imbued with mysticism and mystery.
Fedir Shandor, the head od the Department of Tourism of UzhNU and one of the organizers of the "demonic" tour himself was dressed in priest clothing, and generously distributed Helloween attributes - bats cut out from black paper.
The mystical tour finished near Uzhgorod castle walls, where later the exciting fire-show started.
