Mukac^evo (Sk) Munkács (H) was part of Hungary 10th c to 1919.
Part of Czechoslovakia 1920-1938.
Part of Soviet Union 1945-1991.
Part of Ukraine 1991 - present.
The area of today's Karpatho-Ukraine was part of the Kingdom of
Hungary from the 10th century to 1919, and formed the counties,
comitatus in Latin, which was the legal language of
administration until 1844, Komitat or Gespannschaft in German,
megye in Magyar), of Ung,(capital Ungvár), Bereg (Beregszasz),
U-gocsa (Nagy-Szállos), and Máramaros (Marmaros-Szighet).
They did not form a special administrative area during Hungarian
After peace treaty (1920) the newly formed country of Czechoslovakia
was formed from Bohemia, Moravia, and Austrian-Silesia and Slovakia
The larger part, with an area of 12,600 km or 5,400 sq. miles, was
annexed by the newly created Czechoslovak Republic, or CSR, a
smaller part of Marmaros Komitat by Romania.
Both countries gave cities and villages new official names.
The parts taken by the CSR were organized into the province of
Podkarpatska Rus, divided into four Z^upy (Uz^horod, Mukac^evo,
Berehovo, Marmaros^) whose boundaries followed roughly the old
Komitat boundaries.The county capitals were Uz^horod, (Ungvár),
Berehova, (Beregszasz), Mukac^evo (Munkács, German Munkatsch),
while the new capital of Czech Marmaros was Chust
(Huszt), since Máramarossziget was now the capital of Rumanian
Marmaros under the name of Sighetul Marmariei.
In 1945, Czechoslovakia was restored back to its pre-Munich borders,
less Subcarpathian Rus' which the Soviet Union kept.
(The Allies stripped Hungary of all its post-Munich acquisitions and
returned the country to its Trianon (1920) boundaries)
The Karpatho-Ukraine was annexed in June 1945 by the Soviet Union.
Since 1991, it is part of the independent Republic Ukraine.
