Geography [edit | edit source]

The Transcarpathian region is located on the southwestern slopes and foothills of the Eastern Carpathians, and also includes the Transcarpathian lowland. In the south, the region borders with the Romanian counties of Satu Mare and Maramures, in the southwest - with Szabolcs-Satmar-Beregmedie of Hungary, in the west - with the Presov and Kosice regions of Slovakia and in the northwest - with the Subcarpathian Voivodeship of Poland. This is the only region of Ukraine bordering on Slovakia and Hungary. Thus, the Transcarpathian region is a kind of Ukrainian “window to Europe”. In the north and east, the region borders on two other regions of Ukraine - Lvov and Ivano-Frankivsk. In terms of area, the region occupies the penultimate place among twenty-four Ukrainian regions, ahead of only the Chernivtsi region. The territory of the region is 12,777 km², the population is 1,254,900 people (as of January 1, 2013), which corresponds to 2.11% of the territory and 2.76% of the population of Ukraine.

Relief [edit | edit source]

About 80% of the region's territory is made up of the Carpathian Mountains, located by three main ridges (Verkhovynsky Ridge, Dividing Ridge and Poloninsky Ridge), as well as the Volcanic Carpathians ridge and four smaller, but higher mountain ranges (Chornohora, Svidovets , Gorgan and Rakhiv massif). The peaks of the Montenegrin ridge are the highest on the territory of Ukraine - the peaks of Pip Ivan, Brebeneskul and Petros exceed 2 km in height, and Mount Goverlad reaches an altitude of 2061 m, being the highest point of the region and Ukraine. Transcarpathia is separated from the northeastern slopes of the Carpathians by passes: Yablunetsky (Yablunytsky), Torunsky, Uzhoksky, Veretsky, Volovetsky and Legions with a height of 931 to 1110 m above sea level. Most of the population lives in the Transcarpathian lowland (up to 250 m), which occupies slightly less than 20% of the region's territory.

9429 rivers and streams flow on the territory of the region. The largest of them is the Tisza (Tissa), the left tributary of the Danube, formed with the confluence of the White and Black Tisza. Within the boundaries of the region, its length is 240 km. All major rivers in the region flow either into the Tisza itself, including Borzhava, Rika, Teresva and Tereblya, or into Bodrog in the territory of Slovakia (Latorica and Uzh). There are 137 natural lakes in the region, mainly of glacial origin, the largest and deepest lake in Transcarpathia is Synevyr. Traditionally, it is believed that the geographical center of Europe is located on the territory of Transcarpathia near the village of Delovoe, Rakhiv district (this point of view is now disputed).

Climate [edit | edit source]

Transcarpathia is dominated by a temperate continental climate with a predominant influence from the Atlantic. The average air temperature in July is up to +21 ° C, and in winter -4 ° C (in the highlands up to -10 ° C). The temperature maximum is +40 ° C (recorded in 2010), and the absolute minimum is -41 ° C (recorded in 1993). Summer on the plain is long and hot, lasts up to 135 days (from the first decade of May to mid-September), in the mountains at an altitude of 600 m it lasts less than 70 days. The nature of a relatively mild winter varies depending on the year and altitude; in mountainous regions, its duration reaches 5 months. The average annual temperature in the low-lying areas of Transcarpathia is about +9.5 ° C.

The distribution of precipitation is extremely uneven and is associated with altitudinal zonation. Thus, in the Beregovsky region the amount of precipitation is 640 mm per year, in the foothill Uzhgorod - 805 mm, in the mountains - 1000-1500 mm. Russkaya Mokraya in the Tyachiv region is considered to be a kind of "humidity pole" - it receives an average of 2499 mm of precipitation per year. The snow cover, which usually sets in early December, is unstable; thaws are frequent, but in snowy winters the thickness of the cover reaches 200 cm in the mountains and 80 cm in the lowlands.

Soils [edit | edit source]

The soil cover of Transcarpathia is very diverse. Each relief zone is characterized by its own group of soils, although in general they can be attributed to mixed brown-podzolic soils. Sod-podzolized gley soils and gley or brown gley soils are widespread on the plain. The foothills are characterized by brown-podzolic soils, and in the mountainous areas, brown forest, sod-brown-earth and mountain-meadow soils prevail.

The flora and fauna of Transcarpathia is one of the richest and best preserved in all of Europe. Forests, which are the main wealth of Transcarpathia, now occupy more than 45% of its territory (from the countries of Central Europe, only Slovakia can compare with this indicator, 41%), although at the beginning of the 19th century they covered 85% of the region's land.

Transcarpathia is a multinational region. In a fairly short period of time, there were 5 different countries on the territory. Each of them left its mark on the history of the region and those who live here. IGotoWorld journalists. om have compiled a list of places that, in our opinion, would be great for a traveler to visit.
