Uzhgorod castle (12-18th) is located in an old part of the city. It is the oldest monument of military art and architecture.
This fortress is re-established many times.

The castle as it stands today has a 16th century facade. In the 11-13th centuries Uzhhorod was under Hungarian rule.

In 1648 a thousand-man detachment of Kozaks arrived, escorting the emissary of Khmelnytsky to the Transylvanian King Rakoci.
At the end of 17th.century Uzhgorod had around ten streets and was on the right bank of Uzh River.
