Geocache Description:

Two Saints Near Uzhgorod


The city gets its name from the Uzh River, which divides the city into two halves (the old and new sections). Uzh means ringed snake (Natrix natrix), and horod is Ruthenian for city, coming from Old Slavonic grad . However, this name is a recent construct, and has been used only since the beginning of the XX century. Throughout history, the city has changed names several times: it has been called Ongvar, Hungvar, Unguyvar, and Ungvar, all reflecting relation, with words showing its true origin.The city is spelled in both Ukrainian and Russian, transliterated "Uzhhorod" from Ukrainian, "Uzhgorod" from Russian. Until recently, the city was known in English as Uzhgorod.
