Escargot – Traditional Ukrainian cuisine!

Escargot – snails are Transcarpathian exotic!

We bake them with butter and Parmesan and recommend as an appetizer before the main meal.

It might seem that this is a completely borrowed dish, but not everything is so simple. At the beginning of the XIX century, Transcarpathia was part of the Austrian Empire (long before the state changed its name into Austria-Hungary). According to legend, after the defeat of Napoleon, a group of captive officers from France arrived for eternal settlement on the outskirts of the Austrian Empire – Transcarpathia or more precisely, in a village in Turianska valley under the name of Turia-Remeta, which is in Uzhhorod district.

Since then, in Turianska valley, and now almost everywhere in Transcarpathia, you can taste the Transcarpathian dishes – grape snails or frog legs. This dish goes along well with our dry, authentic Chersegi wine!

Whether it’s a friendly company or a large group, leisure with a glass of delicious wine will be remembered as a holiday. And how else can you spend time in Zakarpattia on Berehove? Of course, it’s relaxation in a thermal complex. I congratulate the leaders in their fields – the Thermal Complex and Aquapark Kosyno, and the Winery Chateau Chizay, on combining their efforts and creating such a tour. It includes a balanced optimal program for a day trip – relaxation for the body in thermal waters, a gastronomic component, cognitive, and of course, high-quality Transcarpathian wine for the soul! This tour is perfect as a one-day component of a longer visit to Zakarpattia, or even as a corporate event for a day. I recommend it as a professional tourism expert and a professional tourist!
