District center, town of Berehovo is located on the plain, but from the north and from the south-east it is surrounded by highlands of volcanic origin covered with vineyards. It borders on Hungary (there are customs crossing points Kosyno, Luzhanka, Dzvinkove ).

As the legend says, a herdsman called Sus was feeding a herd when his ox dug a hole with the help of its hooves and there was a bucket of gold. At the expense of this money construction of a town at the bank of the river began and it was called Beregsus. The first archaeological evidence belong to the late Palaeolithic  Age. In 1241 hordes of Mongolian Tatars destroyed the settlement. Over the years the town became an administrative center of Berezkyi komitat.
