Up until World War II and the Holocaust it was a Jewish town, half the population was Jewish the rest of the population being Rusyn, Hungarian and other minorities. In Czechoslovakia, before that in Hungary, it was incorporated into Soviet Ukraine after World War II. There are many different ways. On 23 May 2017 the Ukrainian parliament renamed Mukacheve into Mukachevo, a year after the city council had decided to rename the city.

It was spelled in Ukrainian as Mukacheve while Мукачів was sometimes used. The city's name in Rusyn is Мукачево, the Russian transliteration -Russian: Мукачево- as well as a name adopted by the local authorities and portrayed on the city's coat of arms. Other names are Hungarian: Munkács. Archaeological excavation suggest. For example, a Celtic oppidum and metal works center that existed in the 3rd-1st century BC were found between the Halish and Lovachka mountains. A Thracian fort of the Iron Age was found on the mountain of Tupcha. Around the 1st century the area was occupied by the Carpi people who displaced the local Celts from the area. In 895 the Hungarian tribes entered the Carpathian Basin through the Verecke Pass, about 60 km north of present-day Mukachevo. In 1397, the town and its surrounding was granted by King Sigismund of Hungary to his distant cousin, the exiled prince of Grand Duchy of Lithuania Theodor Koriatovich, who used to administrate the Ruthenian Podolia region of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, until was exiled for disobedience by Grand Duke Vytautas the Great in 1392.

Theodor therefore settled many Ruthenians in the territory. Other sources, state that Theodor bought the town and the surrounding area in 1396. During the 15th century, the city prospered and became a prominent craft and trade center for the region. In 1445, the town became a Hungarian free royal town, it was granted the rights of Magdeburg law. During the 16th century, Mukachevo became part of the Principality of Transylvania; the 17th century was a time of continuous struggle against the expansionist intentions of the Habsburg Empire for the Principality. In 1687 the anti-Habsburg Revolt of Imre Thököly started out from Mukachevo; the region played an important role in Rákóczi's War of Independence. After the defeat of Francis II Rákóczi the city came under Austrian control in the mid-18th century as part of the Kingdom of Hungary and was made a key fortress of the Habsburg Monarchy. In 1726, the Palanok Castle and the town, before 1711 owned by the Rákóczi family, was given by the Habsburgs to the Schönborn family, who were responsible for an expansion of the town.

They settled many Germans in the territory, thereby causing an economic boom of the region. During 1796-1897, the city's castle, until a strong fortress, became a prison; the Greek national hero Alexander Ypsilanti was imprisoned at the Palanok Castle between 1821 and 1823. In 1919, after the American-Rusyns agreed with Tomáš Masaryk to incorporate Carpathian Ruthenia into Czechoslovakia, the whole of Carpathian Ruthenia was occupied by Czechoslovak troops. On June 4, 1920, Mukachevo became part of Czechoslovakia by the Treaty of Trianon. In November 1938, a part of the territory of the former Kingdom of Hungary was re-annexed by Hungary as part of the First Vienna Award. Without delay the new authorities decreed the expulsion of all the Jews without Hungarian citizenship; as a consequence Polish and Russian Jews, long-term residents of the now Hungarian-controlled Transcarpathian region, from Mukachevo, as well as the native Jews who could not prove their citizenship, were deported over the Ukrainian border where their fate was sealed by the hands of a German Einsatzgruppe commando led by Friedrich Jeckeln.

On August 27 and 28 1941 they were all murdered by the Germans in Kamianets-Podilskyi's massacre. So, Mukachevo's population still held an important Jewish component, until in 1944 all the Jews were deported to Auschwitz by the Nazi German Eichmann Commando, they were the last Jewish community in Europe to succumb to the Holocaust. In the end of 1944, the Red Army stormed Carpathian Ruthenia. At first the territory was given to the reestablished Czechoslovakia became part of the Soviet Union by a treaty between the two countries in 1945; the Soviet Union began a policy of expulsion of the Hungarian population. In 1945, the city was ceded to the Ukrainian SSR. Since 2002, Mukachevo has been the seat of the Roman Catholic diocese comprising Transcarpathia. Mukachevo has a humid continental climate (Köppen: Dfb
