Carpathian Ruthenia

mountains"). This is contrasted implicitly with ''Prykarpattia'' (Ciscarpathia; " Near-Carpathia), an unofficial region in Ukraine, to the immediate north-east of the central area of the Carpathian Range, and potentially including its foothills, the Subcarpathian basin and part of the surrounding plains. Among self-identifying ethnic Ukrainians, Carpathian Ruthenia is usually known simply as Transcarpathia. From a Hungarian, Slovak

and Czech perspective the region is usually described as Subcarpathia (literally "below the Carpathians"), although technically this name refers only to a long, narrow basin that flanks the northern side of the mountains. During the period in which the region was administered by the Hungarian states (History of Hungary) it was officially referred to in Hungarian as Subcarpathia ( ) or North-Eastern Upper Hungary. The Romanian (Romanian language) name

and Slovak (Slovak language): ''Karpatská Rus'') and, occasionally, Hungarian Rus Ruthenia'' ( ). The region declared its independence as Carpatho-Ukraine on March 15, 1939, but was occupied by Hungary in March 15–18, 1939, and remaining under Hungarian control until the German occupation of Hungary in 1944. In 1945, most of the region was annexed by Soviet Union and subsequently incorporated into the independent state of Ukraine


Mosonmagyaróvár

and ''Moson'' by foreigners. The Hansági Museum can be found in Mosonmagyaróvár. http: hansagi.gymsmuzeum.hu Etymology The name Moson comes from the Slavic (Slavic languages) ''Musun'', which means "castle in the marsh". Magyaróvár literally means "ancient Hungarian castle" in Hungarian (Hungarian language), though the ''Magyar-'' prefix was only added to the name after confusion with a similarly named town in Austria called Deutsch

, creating the province of Pannonia. The Romans established a camp called Ad Flexum at the site of Mosonmagyaróvár; it is likely that the Hungarians (Hungarian people) from the Árpád era (Árpád dynasty) would name the place ''Óvár'' due to the Roman ruins which would still be present during the 11th century. The purpose of Ad Flexum was to defend the Mosoni-Duna (Danube), but the security the legions (Roman Legions) provided also drew civilian settlement, especially since a major east

-west trade route ran through the area. Circa 170 AD, Germanic (Germanic peoples) barbarians who lived north of the Danube river attacked the settlement, nearly completely destroying it. The Romans reconquered the area around the 3rd century, and the town once again prospered, likely with a population of three or four thousand people. After the Emperor Valentinianus (Valentinian I) died in 375, Hunnic (Huns) invasions drove the populace away. After the Hungarian prehistory#The "
