Antique Shutters in Berehovo

Berehovo is in Zakarpattia, only 5 km from the Hungarian border. In the interwar period, the city was part of Czechoslovakia.

Old wooden shutters, similar to ones found in Mukachevo, another city in Zakarpattia.

Interestingly, on the bottom of the shutter is an image of a lion, very similar to one that I found in LvivVienna and Prague.

  1. I think all Ukrainians, from homeland and diaspora, should visit Greece. Many of us grow up thinking that our names, language, religious rites and architecture, and other folkloric traditions are our own, but visiting Greece will show that we imported and adopted them lock, stock, and barrel. Flattening the church domes to a pear shape, and polyphony, are the only uniquely Ukrainian contributions that I can think of.
    Nice website!
