I was absent the last 3 days, because I had a spontaneous trip to two mysterious castles.
Uzhgorod castle inspired me to study the history of the past.
Honestly, at school I didn't like the subject of history, it seemed to me boring and not interesting at all. I didn't understand why to read about the events that have long been happening and all that have already been forgotten. What is the benefit of this? Foolish child logic ...
Now I understand that the future is impossible without the knowledge of the past. Why attack the same rake, if you can avoid this using the experience of previous generations.
The past is full of mysteries.
I understood this yesterday when I visited a very creepy castle in which the ghost lives (I will write about it later). I really enjoyed learning different stories of mysterious places, it even became my new hobby.
So, I already told you about the Uzhgorod castle and its history, now I want to show you not less interesting place that is nearby.
This place is called " Transcarpathian museum of folk architecture and life".
Today we travel to ancient Transcarpathian villages. To the place where the Boycos, Hutsuls, Dolynians lived.
Some people began to bring here the most valuable wooden buildings from all corners of Transcarpathia. Now this museum is the oldest scansen in Ukraine.
Here you can see more than 30 unique monuments of folk architecture of the late XVIII - early XX centuries. They represent the people's construction and the life of various social and ethnographic groups of the Transcarpathian region. Products of joiners, cooperators, craftsmen, potters, weavers and embroiderers. In total - about 14 thousand exhibits!
High roofs - almost three times higher than the visible part of the house, you can see in Khust district. This is a kind of folk gothic. And yet - the traditional blue color of the walls: satiated from the outside and lighter from the inside.
It was beautifully developed wicker yard. And the traditions of apiaries were also interesting. Not ordinary simple beehives, but two-storey ones.
If you come inside - you can see how people lived here, because the interior is reproduced to the smallest details: tables, shoes, wooden bed...
Children's beds, clay pots and other things people made with their own hands.
The well was a property of the whole village, because source water was considered sacred and to grudge water for someone was considered a sin.
Here such wooden wells were built in those days:
It's only a small part of the whole exposition, read the second part in my next post 😉😉😉.
