Synevyr Lake is the biggest mountain lake in the Ukrainian Carpathian Mountains (989 meters asl). 

Saint Miklosz Castle is a fortress, built in the XVth century in the Romanesque style. In the end of the XVII century, the gloomy and bleak castle became a retreat for the passionate romance of the Duchess Ilona Zrinyi and her lover, later husband, Count Imre Thököly whose affair was a European sensation of the day.

Schoenborn palace was build by the Austrian-Hungarian Count Schoenborn as a hunting lodge in the end of XIX century in the style of Romanticism with the elements of gothic. Around the palace there is a well-curated park with the rare botanical species. From 1945 and on, the palace hosts a health resort for patients with cardiovascular diseases.

Palanok Castle in Mukachevo is a well-preserved fortress, first built in the XI century, with the different architectural influences of the later historical periods. The castle played an important role in the History of Hungary, Transylvania, and Austrian-Hungarian Empire.
