The Castle of Khust castle was once a powerful fortification (XI-XVIII centuries) located in the town of Khust (Zakarpattia region).

An UNIAN photographer took a walk to check its current state.

The Castle of Khust was built in 1090-1191 as a Hungarian royal fortress to protect the salt treaders' route at the Khust gates and border areas. In modern time, only separate fragments have remained from the fortress.

From the center of Khust to the ruins of the castle leads a 2-3 km-long uphill path.

Khust is a small town with a population of about 28,000, resembling European towns - with neat little red-roofed houses, cozy streets, and old churches.
