MSU students have interned in the medieval castle of St. Miklos in Transcarpathia

From June 25th to July 7th, students of Mariupol State University took part in an international voluntary project to restore the Transcarpathian Castle St. Miklos registered in the National cultural heritage list.

The castle is a sample of the XIV-XIX centuries architecture. At different times it belonged to the Hungarian princess Ilona Zrinyi, Transylvanian prince Francis Rakoczi, and members of the German-Austrian Shenborn noble family. Since 2001 the tenant of the castle, Ukrainian artist, composer and patron Yosyp Bartosh has been engaged in restoration and research organization within this complex.

 

Freshmen majoring in history and university graduates led by the head of the archaeological expedition of Mariupol State University, Viacheslav Zabavin, future historians got familiar with the stages of the expedition and put acquired knowledge into practice.

 

The boys and girls managed to balance the work on the St. Miklos Castle excavations, tour around wilderness of Transcarpathia and recreational activities. During their practice students visited Odessa, Lviv, Uzhhorod, Mukachevo, and the village of Mizhhirya.

 

The St. Miklos Castle has been a volunteer center in Transcarpathia for the third consecutive year. In summer, the youth from across Ukraine gather in Chynadiyovo in order to explore and restore the unique medieval building.
