"Enemy" will not break through? A "defensive" road leads to the main tourist object in Uzhgorod (PHOTOS)
Uzhgorod Castle is the pride of the city and the region, Transcarpathian ethnographic museum located in it is the main treasury of local history, and the neighboring Transcarpathian Museum of Folk Architecture and Life is also a famous and interesting object often visited by tourists.
However, Kapitulna street, which leads to these landmarks, is really horrible. Therefore, the way to the main tourist highlight of the regional center (if not all Transcarpathia) is not easy. And the road itself is a disgrace for the city authorities. Pavement is not what it was before, entire sections are missing, in some places pits are almost half a meter in size.
Nevertheless, hundreds of thousands of tourists every season visit the castle and the museum, as well as official guests from different regions of the state, official delegations from Kyiv and from abroad. Those institutions also serve as venues for numerous concerts, events and festivals, they are one of the best sites for photo sessions and excursions for students. For all those people, the current state of the road is the evidence of the municipal authorities' disrespect for guests of the city, and for the tourism industry. And for drivers, it is the cause of some strong language and expenses for repair of their own cars. For tourist buses, Kapitulna street is comparable with defense structures - only daredevils would risk driving there.
How long is it going to remain like that? We hope that the question will finally cease to be rhetorical and the street will have the attention, which, logically, should be a priority.
