Students from Mariupol were shown night Uzhgorod
Night tour of Uzhgorod is a rather unusual practice for our city.
Under the GOxChange program, students from Mariupol continue to get acquainted with the city's life and culture. In order to learn the history of Uzhgorod through architecture, they took a walk in the night city with the teacher of the Department of History of Ukraine Yuriy Slavik.
The guide took the Mariupol residents to the historic center - from Teatralna Square to the Cathedral. The guests made a short trip into the past of the city, saw the "Uzhgorod social network" - Teatralna Square, where in the old days people would come to hear the latest news and gossip, the monument to artist Ignatiy Roshkovich, the linden alley, which is considered to be the longest in Europe, learned where informal groups gathered in the days of the USSR to listen to forbidden foreign music. Then, they listened to the story of a legendary person - lamplighter Uncle Kolya - and found out what the phrase "we'll meet at the Cross" means.
Also, Yuriy Slavik showed them the Gizella's House, where a church school for girls was situated, and now it serves as the premises of the music college. The guests learned that the Uzhgorod Philharmonic was one of the largest Jewish synagogues in Eastern Europe, then had the opportunity to visit the three epochs that are reflected in the cobblestones of different periods near the Cathedral. Of course, Yuriy Slavik told about the Cathedral itself and Maria Theresa.
After the tour, the students went to "digest" what they had heard in one of Uzhgorod gourmet establishments.
