In various historical eras, the city of Mukachevo was part of various countries and states, which could not but affect its traditions, national customs, and architecture. Mukachevo lay at the crossroads of trade routes, referred to in history as the great Slavic route. These paths ran from north and west to south, and they crossed only in the Carpathians. Mukachevo for many centuries provided political, trade and cultural ties between different countries and peoples living on different sides of the Carpathians, and it is natural that both Asian and European countries constantly tried to subdue this city.
