Bukovyna is a historical region in the southwest of Ukraine. The Dnister River and the Carpathian Mountains bound it from the north, and in the south, it borders Romania. Once a year, one can experience the vibrant celebration of Malanka in the border village of Krasnoilsk. The largest city and cultural centre of the region is Chernivtsi. The prominent building of the Chernivtsi University and the majestic Khotyn Fortress became symbols of the region's tourist attraction.
5 white domes are hiding in Bukovyna Carpathians. They were providing control over air border of the USSR. The remains of the station with code name "Pamir" are still crowning the top of Tomnatyk mountain on the border with Romania.
The Khotyn Fortress has been defending an important trade and customs center on the river Dnister. At different times it was residence for Turkish and polish soldiers, cossacks and hetmans. Nowadays it attracts tourists from all over the world.
The architectural complex of Chernivtsi National University made its way through times as a residence of metropolitans and into a shrine of knowledge and UNESCO world heritage spot. Take a look at the unique complex of the Chernivtsi National University.
