Church of St. Nikolay 

 Church of St. Nikolai is situated in the village Kolodno  (Tyachiv area). It is an architectural monument which was built in 1470 and reconstructed in XVIII cent. This church is the masterpiece of wooden architecture.

The iconostasis was made in the middle of XVII cent. and in 1737 artist Illya from Hust renovated it.

In the Soviet times this church was a museum. Nowadays there are no religious services in the church of St. Nicolay because another large stone church was built in Kolodno.

Soon the church of St. Nicolay will be restored.

There is a version that legendary defender of Mukachevo castle "Palanok" Ilona Zrini (wife of Prince Rakoczy I) first saw here her  beloved Hungarian count Imre Tekeli. In this castle, they secretly met each other and that is why Chinadiyovsku fortress became known as the Castle of Love.

Wine cellars in the Serednye village

This village is located in 20 km from Uzhgorod. There are 2 historical and architectural monuments here which attract tourists: wine cellars of XVI cent. and ruins of the medieval castle.

Cellars were dug by the Turks, captured by the Hungarians during the defense of Eger fortress in 1552. They hollowed four and a half kilometres of passages with picks. At first cellars were used as shelters from enemies, from XVIII cent. people began to store wine there.

Wines from these cellars were sent to famous and crowned figures from Europe. In 1711 Russian tsar Petr І tasted it and then bought vineyards in Serednye, which later were called “tsar's vineyards”. Wines from bunches of grapes from Serednye were delivered to Petersburg the whole year round.

Commercial production of wine in Serednye survived until now. The biggest wine wood in the cellar is designed for 10,594 litres.

Through the capillaries of the bedrock of volcanic origin fresh air always penetrates to caves,  this is very important for wine ripening. That is why wine from Serednye is one of the best in Ukraine.
