The Zakarpattia Oblast
Zakarpattia Oblast
(Ukrainian: Закарпатська область, translit. Zakarpats’ka oblast’; see other languages) is an administrative oblast (province) located in southwestern Ukraine, coterminous with the historical region of Carpathian Ruthenia. Its administrative centre is the city of Uzhhorod. Other major cities within the oblast include Mukachevo, Khust, Berehove
and Chop which is home to railroad transport infrastructure. Zakarpattia Oblast
Zakarpattia Oblast
was established on 22 January 1946, after Czechoslovakia
ceded the territory of Subcarpathian Ruthenia (Czech: Podkarpatská Rus) to the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, under a treaty between Czechoslovakia
and the Soviet Union. Some scholars say that during the Ukrainian independence referendum held in 1991, Zakarpattia Oblast
Zakarpattia Oblast
voters were given a separate option on whether or not they favoured autonomy for the region.[4] Although a large majority favoured autonomy, it was not granted.[4] However, this referendum was about self-government status, not about autonomy (like in Crimea).[5] Situated in the Carpathian Mountains
Carpathian Mountains
of western Ukraine, Zakarpattia Oblast is the only Ukrainian administrative division which borders upon four countries: Poland, Slovakia, Hungary
and Romania. The Carpathian Mountains
Carpathian Mountains
play a major part in the oblast's economy, making the region an important tourist and travel destination housing many ski and spa resorts. With its almost 13,000 square kilometres (5,000 sq mi), the oblast is ranked 23rd by area and 15th by population as according to the 2001 Ukrainian Census, the population of Zakarpattia Oblast
Zakarpattia Oblast
is 1,254,614. This total includes people of many different nationalities of which Hungarians, Romanians
and Rusyns
constitute significant minorities in some of the province's cities, while in others, they form the majority of the population (as in the case of Berehove).

Name[edit] The oblast is also referred to as the Transcarpathian Oblast, Transcarpathia, Zakarpattya, or historically as Subcarpathian Rus. In other languages the oblast is named:

Rusyn: Подкарпатьска област, translit. Podkarpat’ska oblast.[citation needed] Hungarian: Kárpátalja Czech: Podkarpatská Rus Slovak: Zakarpatská oblasť Polish: Obwód zakarpacki Romanian: Maramureșul de Nord ([maraˈmureʃul de ˈnord]) or Romanian: Regiunea Transcarpatia ([red͡ʒiˈune̯a transkarˈpat͡i.a]) Russian: Закарпатская область, translit. Zakarpatskaya oblast

While the name Transcarpathia is a translation of the Ukrainian version of the name, the Hungarian name translates as Subcarpathia, following the Hungarian language
Hungarian language
logic "feet of the mountains", naming a territory after its geographic location at the lower section of a mountain range. (Following the same language pattern that applies to the name of the sub-Alpian territory in Western Hungary, Alpokalja)[6] Generally, the Transcarpathia name and its versions reflect the East Slavic language logic, while some Western languages follow the same logic as the Hungarian:[7]

English: Subcarpathia, Subcarpathian Rus, Subcarpathian Ruthenia, Sub-Carpathian Ukraine French: Ukraine
Subcarpathique, Russie subcarpathique

Other Western languages follow their own logic in creating a name for the region:

German: Karpatenrussland, Karpatenland, Karpathenland, Karpatho-Russland, Karpatenukraine, Karpato-Ukraine

The coat of arms of Zakarpattia was originally created in the end of the 1910s in the then Czechoslovakia. Geography[edit] The Zakarpattia Oblast
Zakarpattia Oblast
has a total area of 12,800 km2 (4,942 sq mi) and is located on southwestern slopes and foothills of the Carpathian Mountains

which is part of the Pannonian plain. Zakarpattia is the only Ukrainian oblast to have boundaries with four countries: Poland, Slovakia, Hungary
and Romania.[9] On the West it borders the Prešov and Košice Regions of Slovakia
and Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén
and Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg

mostly consists of mountains and small hills covered with deciduous and coniferous forests, as well as alpine meadows. Mountains cover about 80% of the oblast's area, and cross from North-East to South-East.[10] The Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathians, part of which are located within Zakarpattia Oblast, were recognized as a UNESCO
World Heritage Site
World Heritage Site
in 2007.[11] The largest rivers that flow through the oblast include the Tysa, Borzhava, and the Tereblia. A high altitude lake is located in Rakhiv Raion, which is the highest in the region. It is called Nesamovyte.[12] The lake is located in the Hoverla
preserve on the slopes of Turkul mountain. The lake's area is 3,000 square metres (32,000 sq ft) and it is located 1,750 metres (5,740 ft) above sea level. The region's climate is moderate and continental[8] with about 700–1,000 mm (28–39 in) of rainfall per year.[9] The average temperature in summer is +21 °С (70 °F) and −4 °С (25 °F) in winter.[8] With an elevation of 2,061 metres (6,762 ft) above sea level, Hoverla, part of the Chornohora
mountain range, is the highest point in the oblast.[8] The lowest point, 101 m (331 ft) above sea level, is located in the village of Ruski Heyevtsi (Oroszgejőc in Hungarian) in the Uzhhorodskyi Raion.[10] Four of the oblast's historical-cultural sites were nominated for the Seven Wonders of Ukraine
competition in 2007: Palanok Castle, Museum upon the Chorna River, Mykhailiv Orthodox Church, and the Nevytsky Castle. History[edit] See also: Carpathian Ruthenia

Carpathian highlanders

The lands of Transcarpathia were part of the Kingdom of Hungary
since 896. As such, it formed part of Austria- Hungary
until the latter's demise at the end of World War I. It approximately consists of four Hungarian counties (comitatus): Bereg, Ung, Ugocsa
and Maramaros. This region was briefly part of the short-lived West Ukrainian National Republic in 1918. The region was annexed by Romania
by the end of that year, mostly the eastern portion such as Rakhiv
and Khust. It was later recaptured by Hungarian Soviet Republic
Hungarian Soviet Republic
in the summer of 1919. Finally, under the name Subcarpathian Rus (Czech: Podkarpatská Rus), after the Paris Peace Conference of 1919 it was annexed to Czechoslovakia
with a supposedly equal level of autonomy as Slovakia and Bohemia-Moravia-Czech Silesia
(Czech lands).[13] Nevertheless, such autonomy was granted as late as in 1938, after detrimental events of the Munich Conference; until then this land was administered directly from Prague
by the government-appointed provincial presidents (zemští prezidenti) and/or elected governors (guvernéři). The province has a unique footnote in history as the only region in the former Czechoslovakia
to have had an American governor: its first governor was Gregory Zatkovich, an American citizen who had earlier emigrated from the region and represented the Rusyn community in the U.S. Zatkovich was appointed governor by Czechoslovakia's first president, T. G. Masaryk in 1920, and served for about one year until he resigned over differences regarding the region's autonomy.

During the World War II German occupation of Czechoslovakia, the southern part of the region was awarded to Hungary
under the First Vienna Award in 1938. The remaining portion was constituted as an autonomous region of the short-lived Second Czechoslovak Republic. After the occupation of Bohemia
and Moravia
on March 15, 1939 and the Slovak declaration of an independent state, Carpathian Ruthenia declared its independence as the Republic of Carpatho-Ukraine, but was immediately occupied and later annexed by Hungary.[14] Because it only existed on March 15th 1939 the state is known as 'the one-day republic'

The major Jewish communities of the region had existed in Munkachevo, Ungvar, and Khust. During the German occupation of Hungary
[March 1944-December 1944] , almost the entire Jewish population was deported; few survived the Holocaust.[15] In October 1944 the Sub-Carpathian Ukraine
was occupied by the Red Army. On 26 November 1944 in Mukacheve
took place the First Congress of People's Committees of Zakarpattia Ukraine,[1] elections to which took place in November 10-25, 1944.[16] In June 29, 1945, Czechoslovak President Edvard Beneš
Edvard Beneš
signed a treaty ceding the area and the next month it was united with the Ukrainian SSR
Ukrainian SSR
through the "Manifest for unification with the Soviet Ukraine" that was accepted by the 1st Congress of People's Committees of Sub-Carpathian Ukraine
without any knowledge of common people. It was then annexed into the Ukrainian SSR as Zakarpattia Oblast.[15] After the break-up of the Soviet Union, it became part of independent Ukraine. After the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, Ukraine
held an independence referendum in which the residents of Zakarpattia were asked about the Zakarpattia Oblast
Zakarpattia Oblast
Council's proposal for self-rule.[4] About 78% of the oblast's population voted in favour of autonomy; however, it was not granted.[4] There were also propositions of separating from Ukraine
to rejoin Czechoslovakia,[17] but after Czechoslovakia's dissolution into the Czech Republic
Czech Republic
and the Slovak Republic (1993), these ideas have been rendered largely moot. On October 25, 2008, delegates to the Congress of Carpathian Ruthenians declared the formation of the Republic of Carpathian Ruthenia.[18] The prosecutor’s office of Zakarpattia region has filed a case against Russian Orthodox Church

Zakarpattia Oblast
incorporates four unofficial geographic-historic regions (counties): Ung, Bereg, Ugocsa
and Northern Maramuresh. There is a project for a reform of the current administrative division of the Oblast[21] The oblast (region) is divided into 13 raions and five cities of regional importance including the administrative centre Uzhhorod. Administrative centres of raions may be located within a city of regional importance, while such city is not technically a part of the raion. A city of regional significance may consists of an individual populated place or be complex of several settlements (the city proper and suburbs) which are governed by own radas (councils). Further each raion divided into radas (councils). Cities and towns (urban type settlements) all have own individual councils, while villages and rural settlements may be formed into multiple settlements councils or an individual village council. All cities are either of regional importance or of district importance. Raions[edit] There are 13 raions (districts) in the oblast:
