City of inspiration

If Paris or Vienna are too pricey for you, the city of Chernivtsi in Western Ukraine is where you should go. An incredible architectural ensemble of Byzantine, Gothic and Baroque styles as well as rich historical and cultural heritage, here are the best things to see in Chernivtsi!

Climb the Chernivtsi City Hall

One of the most memorable towers in Ukraine is the Chernivtsi City Hall. Chernivtsi City Hall is still being used for its intended purpose, as the seat of the City Council. Tourists can climb to the observation deck, which offers a wonderful panorama of the city and its surroundings. The interesting fact: every day at 12 o’clock the traditional Bukovina song “Marichka” is heard, it gathers many tourists around the building.

Attend the Chernivtsi National University

The real architectural pearl of the city is Chernivtsi National University, or the former Residence of Bukovinian and Dalmatian Metropolitans. The complex of three buildings was constructed in the late 19th century, and amazes with the richness of its design.

Stroll along Olha Kobylyahska Street

The street named after Ukrainian writer Olha Kobylyanska is in the heart of Chernivtsi. It is always crowded during the weekends because there are so many cozy cafes, restaurants, shops, several cinemas and even an art salon here. In terms of architecture, the houses on the main street are bright representatives of the different styles of old Europe.

Relish the art

Chernivtsi Museum of Arts is the second most inspiring building, after the university. It was erected in 1901 and decorated in the Viennese style. In total, the museum houses more than 12,000 exhibits. Almost all of them represent the art of the Bukovina region from the 17th to the 20th centuries. The Chernivtsi Museum of Arts is the best place to explore the art of Bukovina and discover new names.

Chernivtsi Drama Theatre

Chernivtsi Drama Theatre is magnificent building. Look at the statues on the outside wall in front of the building and get the spirit of the old days and the Austrian architecture.
