Mukachevo Palanok makes money for maintenance and update of the fortress
Mukachevo castle "Palanok" is the most popular and most visited tourist spot of Transcarpathia. In 2017, 282,460 tourists visited the famous architectural monument. Last year alone, the castle made more than 10 million hryvnias. These funds are used for renovations in the castle.
Most of the funds are used for the purchase and installation of the video surveillance system (UAH 149 thousand), advance payment for the arrangement of external lighting of the castle "Palanok" building complex (416 thousand), the purchase of pavement tiles at UAH 188 thousand, the purchase and installation of entrance doors (32 thousand), computer equipment (14 thousand), for manufacturing, varnishing and installation of decorative frames (renovation of history display objects). At present, works are being performed in the courtyard of the "Palanok": the uncomfortable courtyard river stone pavement, which was laid in the middle of the 1990s, is being replaced with blocks; the facades of the Middle Courtyard buildings are being renovated and painted.
Usually spring and summer months are the most popular with tourists. Therefore, many interesting tourist attractions are being prepared for the visitors of the castle: celebration of the International Museums Day, reenactment of the wedding of Ilona Zrinyi, the bicycle marathon "Three Castles of Transcarpathia", mystical night tours with torches, high art in art galleries and opening of new museum rooms.
