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!

Friendly company or large group – leisure time with a glass of delicious wine will be remembered as a holiday. And how else can you spend time in Transcarpathia in Berehovo district? Of course it is a holiday in thermal complex. I compliment the leaders in their fields of activity – Kosino Thermal Complex and Water park and Chateau Chizay Winery for joining their efforts to create such a tour. It includes a balanced optimal program for a weekend visit: relaxation for your body in thermal waters, gastronomic treats, informative component and of course Transcarpathian high quality wine for the soul! This tour is perfect as one-day stop of a longer visit to Transcarpathia, and even as one-day corporate trip. I recommend this tour as a professional tourism expert and professional tourist!
