The city of Beregovo is situated on the banks of a small river of Verke. At the foot of mountains which slopes are planted with vineyards, it is known with its old traditions of grapes cultivation and wine manufacturing.

Well-known reformat writer Papai Pariz Ferenc (1649-1716) in his book “Dictionarium latino-hungarium” claims, that there had been a Roman settlement before arrival of Hungarians, called Perigium. However there had been no success in scientific confirmation of such assumption.

  It is authentically known that after death of brother Bejla of Hungarian king Endre I, his landed properties by the right of succession became a property of his sons- Heiza, Laszlo and Lampert. This district had passed in possession of Lampert. In folklore it is spoken that a founder of a settlement on the banks of Verke which had been later called after him “Villa Lamperti “, that means –The House of Lampert, was exactly him.

 During many centuries the Hungarian kings had been the owners of the settlement.

 In 1141 after numerous invadings of Polovci, king Geiza II had moved the Saxons into city, since that the city had been called Szasz, Lampertszasz, Lumprehtszasz, Lamperthaz.

 A widely known legend says that the city had been founded much earlier. Due to this a famous researcher-ethnographer Tivadar Legocki wrote “As to a legend according to which a young shepherd Szasz on the place of present roman-catholic church, in a hole dug by the hoofs of fighting bulls, had found a treasure and had constructed on that place church, and had built a city around it, which had been called later as Beregszasz, has no historical confirmation.”

 Since 1504 the city in documents mentioned as Beregszasz.

 Since 1946, the official name of the city is Beregovo. It is the only city of Transkarpathia where the prevailing majority of population are Hungarians.

 Beregovo is the city of regional submission, is the center of Beregovskij area, it is located on the distance of 72 kms. from the state center Uzhgorod. The territory of  Beregovskij area is 802 sq. kms. population is 83,3 thousand people, 32 thousand from this number live in Beregovo. Across the city flows a small channel of Verke, connecting the river Borzhava with Latorica.

 Until 1944 the city with some breaks had been the heart of Beregovskaja Zhupa.

 As it’s been already marked, the founder of Beregovo had been duke Lampert, the king brother’s son Endre I Bejla. Later adjoining landed properties became the properties of Arpad dynasty kings and their sons. In 1247 king Bejla IV had given to the city status of the royal city. Its prosperity had coincided with the period of reign of the king Liudvig the Great and the queen Erzhebet. Later the adjoining lands had come in possession of Transilvania Prince Gabor Betlen, who had the palace built in the city. Beregovo had an important role in the emancipating anti-gabsburg war of Prince Ferenc Rakoci. The 22nd of May of 1703, on the central square of Beregovo Tomas Esze had developed a banner of revolt. Ference Rakoci in the city had given out in December 20 1705, the appeal to people to revolt.

 The city had taken an active part in the emancipating war of 1848-1849. After the Sen-Zhermen peace treaty, it became a part of Czechoslovak republic.

 In June 1945 Transkarpathia became a part of Ukraine.
