Khust is a city located on the Khustets River in Zakarpattia Oblast in western Ukraine. It is near the confluence of the Tisa and Rika Rivers. Serving as the administrative center of Khust Raion, the city itself does not belong to the raion and is designated as a city of oblast significance, with the status equal to that of a raion. Population:.Khust was the capital of the short-lived republic of Carpatho-Ukraine.Origin of nameThe name is most possibly related to the name of the stream Hustets or Husztica, whose meaning is "kerchief". It is also conceivable that the name of the city comes from a Romanian traditional food ingredient - husti.There are several alternative names used for this city: Russian and Rusyn: Хуст, Romanian: Hust, Hungarian: Huszt, Czech and Slovak: Chust, חוסט, Chust.There is also one fairy tale about the town's name. Once chort was walking around the town and then mountain had appeared. A moment later, it fell down on his tail. He shouted “Hvust” (Transcarpathian dialect, “Хвіст” in Ukrainian, “Tail” in English). Another chort heard “Khust” … In that way, the name of the town was formed.
