A historical monument of Uzhgorod is preserved by residents, not by the city
The Stary Zamok wrote about the building located on Dendeshi street, 8, that was built at the end of the XVI century and belonged to the Hungarian Count, poet, writer Istvan Dendeshi.
In 1908, Uzhgorod literary society, named after him, put on the facade of the building a plaque that has been staying there to this day. Among the experts, the building is known as the "Dendeshi's Manor" or "House of forestry."
Currently, the tenant of the building is "Ukrposhta" represented by branch number 7 and individuals, and the landlord is Uzhgorod Executive Committee and City Council. According to the residents of Radvanka, the building has not been repaired for 30 years. During rain or snow, everything leaks. In particular, the facade, roof, floor and attic urgently need the repair.
"We've been appealing to various authorities for more than ten years - Oleg, an activist said. - Sometimes they answer, sometimes they do not. And in the building the roof leaks, there is a hole in the floor at the entrance."
Resident of the house Anna Kalynych adds: "We wanted to replace the windows and repair the facade because it's all crumbling. The City Hall warned us that any changes can be made only under the permission and new windows must be identical in form and type of wood with current ones. We do not have money for this, because it is manual work."
"I have three children - Nataliya complains. - In May this year, the ceiling fell in the hallway. Thanks God, nobody was hurt."
"The house in a very neglected state of emergency - Vasyl Popovych confirms. - Its residents had a meeting on August 8.Everyone signed a collective statement that on August 29 was submitted to the City Council, the National Commission for the Protection of Monuments of Culture and the Consulate of Hungary."
