Transcarpathian museum workers presented a unique guide - "Journey to museums of Transcarpathia" (PHOTOS)
On June 16, in the regional museum of folk architecture and life, there was the presentation of the guidebook "Journey to museums of Transcarpathia" which was published recently by the Mukachevo publishing studio "Zoriana" with the support of the Department of Culture of Transcarpathian Regional State Administration and the Communal Enterprise "Agency of regional development and cross-border cooperation "Zakarpattya"of the Transcarpathian Regional Council".
The publication was presented by its proponents, authors and publishers. In particular, the head of the Department of Culture of the Transcarpathian Regional State Administration Yuriy Hleba said that the intention to issue such an album arose at the beginning of the year in anticipation of two key dates: the 70th anniversary of the Transcarpathian Regional Ethnographic Museum and the 45th anniversary of the founding of the Regional Museum of Folk Architecture and Life. "I think that the objective is achieved: the album turned out to be festive, but also presentable and useful both for museum professionals and for tourists."
The album includes articles on 38 museum facilities that geographically cover all parts of Transcarpathia and represent diverse typology of museums: from state - to private ones, from local history - to food. Also, the publication contains interesting articles about the history and prospects of the museum business in the region. One of the authors, Honored Worker of Culture of Ukraine Vasyl Haborets said: among all cultural areas, the museum business should be a priority, since, when visiting any place, a person first gets acquainted with the history and traditions of the place, and then, in the light of what they saw, examines everything around more consciously. Therefore, it is the museum business that presents the identity of the region and is an integral part of its tourist appeal.
