Uzhgorod: Welcome to Rusyns, Hutsuls and the Ethnographic Museum


Around Uzhgorod in the Carpathian Mountains, one may encounter the Rusyn people.  One of the Rusyn clans, the Hutsuls, have their own traditional clothing.  In Kyiv’s National Historical Museum, one display showcased a folkloric Hutsul vest.

In Uzhgorod, I went to the ethnographic museum for a peek into rural life.
