Throughout its more than a thousand-year history, Uzhgorod has been repeatedly passed from hand to hand, changing its rulers and "masters". The architectural appearance of the city has been particularly affected by the almost six-hundred-years presence of Hungarians - many streets  of Uzhgorod are very similar to the neighborhoods of the Hungarian Debrecen or Budapest: picturesque two-three stores houses,  that have preserved medieval ornamentation on their walls. On the way from Uzhgorod stop in the humorous tavern-museum "Detsa at Notary". A unique tavern-museum, the concept of which is based on  the vivid humor of Transcarpathian folks . The title is translated as "A shot of vodka from a notary." There will be lots of reasons to laugh: from funny signs at the entrance to the advertasings on the walls and even manu is made in funny manner with a use of the local dialect. Transfer to the village of Lumshory, bathing in vats of mineral water (for additional fee, the amount is depending on the quantity of participants).  Heated water tanks, with water from a hydrogen sulfide mineral spring, started to be used  for medical procedures back in the XVII century. One of the old cast iron tanks is now in Austria, and the other one is always ready for our guests !!! The tank is filled with cold mineral water, river stones are laid on the bottom, then the water is gradually heated on an open fire. When the temperature reaches 30 degrees, you can start taking a bath, alternating immersion in hot water with cooling in a cold waters of the mountain river. 13.00 – Departure for Lviv.
