Welcome to the city that stands on the stone blocks of Ancient Rome fortress and where one can feel a breath of majestic antique civilization. An ancient city Chernivtsi (Chernivtsi region), locating on the picturesque banks of the river Prut in the Carpathian foothill, is ready to meet you!
This city was inhabited by different nations (there were the first settlements in late Stone Age). Various cultures formed an inimitable architecture charm of Chernivtsi. It is you that the city looks forward to share it with.
You will see peaceful coexistence of Armenian Catholic church, ancient Synagogue (one of the largest in Europe) and a wooden Orthodox temple. Strict Gothic building of the Roman Catholic Church, the Greek Catholic church, an amazing theatre in baroque, a railway station in neorenaissance and the city post department in neoclassicism open their hearts to you.
Here you can see “House-Ship” whose unusual decoration – a fountain in a shape of a lion’s head with a cup-shell - divides the streets; a monumental Theatre Square (built 40 years ago) that places Ukrainian “Alley of stars” (it keeps touching of solemn and popular singers of Ukraine) and majestic Bukovynian Mytropolyt residency, that is the main sightseeing of the city. Currently the residency turns into the Chernivtsi university.
Unexpected variety of architecture forms really charms! You will see a unique combination of antique spirit, strict Empire style and inimitable shade of neobaroque and architecture extravagances of Stalin’s fundamentalism. Light is known as one of conditions that can influence perception of art works. Chernivtsi is the same here. If you allow to be invited to a night rendezvous with the city you will never forget refined contour of its inimitable profile.
