To see Prague and ... fall in love with Khust. Or rather, with Prague in Khust. On 10 October 2017 young artists-participants of the Open Student Contest in Painting "Silver Easel" arrived in the capital of the Carpathian Ukraine. This day it was organized a city tour for the contestants so that they could choose the location for the first stage – "Cityscape".

The participants wandered around the castle, saw the city centre, historical monuments. The participants especially liked the famous "Czech block", which is called a little Prague. "A very cosy city, like all small towns," the participant VeroniKa Zasadna said. There are a lot of interesting architectural solutions, beautiful landscapes. There is a lot to paint ... "

The picturesque green corners of the small town also pleased the participants. "If Andy Warhol grew up in a small Carpathian village and was inspired by it, then modern artists, I think, will surely have something to paint here," Fedir Shandor, who organised the tour, noted. Khust is a very picturesque town, there are a lot of historical monuments, standards of the Czech culture and Gothic art."

The participants of the "Silver Easel" were lucky to see the pristine beauty of the Carpathians and feed the real deer and sheep. "I am from a big city, from Kyiv," the participant from National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture Yevhenii Orlov, who started painting directly during the excursion, says.  I have not ever seen either deer or even sheep which walk here. It is so unusual and interesting that I wanted to paint it at once."

The opinion of the boy is shared by Taras Hodvan from the Transcarpathian Academy of Arts: "This place inspires to creativity. From the art point of view, this is an excellent location."
