One of the most beautiful cities in Europe with many cultures and nationalities enriching each other.
The city's main attraction is the architectural marvel of Chernivtsi University. This former complex of buildings of the residence of Orthodox metropolitans of Bukovyna and Dalmatia (1864-1882), is now listed as a world heritage site by UNESCO. The complex of buildings combines Mauritania, Byzantine, Roman, and Hutsul styles. Genius architect J. Hlavka has integrated a variety of styles to create these beautiful structures.
You will be enchanted by the City tower (1848) and Theatre (1905). You will also see ‘Star Alley’, featuring Bukovyna Art Masters on the sidewalk leading to the theatre. The so-called “Drunk Church” (1939) is really worth admiring because there are no similar churches in Ukraine. You can also see here the inspiring sea-themed Ship House (19th century) will certainly inspire you to travel.
Chernivtsi offers many interesting and exciting places for every guest.
Not every village in Ukraine can boast of two fantastic churches with the same name. The older one is the stone defensive Saint Ilia Church (1560), with a belfry and hidden cupolas. It is a perfect example of a house type Bukovyna church. It’s “sister” Saint Ilia church (1914) is one of the most beautiful churches in our country. It looks like a castle with towers. Emperor Franz Joseph donated part of the money to building the church. As an expression of gratitude parishioners carved a magnificent throne for him and it is still kept in this majestic church.
The former town of Sadhora, is now part of Chernivtsi. Here a currency production facility (mint) was founded by Baron Gartenberg. It is also famous because the famous Hasad prophet Israel Fridman lived and preached here. Here you will also find a renovated Synagogue (1842) in Mauritania style and a Palace of Sadagur Rabbis that have been here since early times.
If you want to see beautiful tulip fields, there is no need to visit Holland, anymore because more than fifty kinds of these flowers bloom near Chernivtsi yearly. The flowers create bright and colorful geometric patterns, that will fascinate you. You are welcome to enjoy these flowers which were considered to be the symbol of wealth and nobility in past times.
The oldest stone Bukovyna church of Ascension (ХІІІ ct.) is located here. During the recent restoration a fragment of mural with Saint George the Dragon (ХІІІ-ХІV ct.) has been restored. There are no similar murals in western Ukraine.
Famous Ukrainian actor, producer, composer and director, Ivan Mykolaichuk was born in this picturesque Village on the bank of the river Cheremosh. Ivan Mykolaichuk played in 30 films. The most famous of them are: “Dream”, “The Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors”, “The White Bird Marked with Black” and “Babylon XX”. His art can be found in the Memorial Mylolaichuk House Museum, where the genius’s relatives tell visitors about the famous man.
