BUKOVYNA COGNITA

CATHEDRALS & CHURCHES



Chernivtsi religious structures personify the best historical traditions of architecture. The oldest one is the wooden St. Mykolay Church typical for Bukovyna of XVI-XVIII centuries. In 1787 Roman-Catholic Cathedral of St. Cross Erection was built. Another distinguishing construction is the Holy Spirit Cathedral that was sanctified in 1864 by Evhen Hakman, a bishop of Bukovyna being one of the most outstanding personalities of Bukovyna’s spiritual life in the XIX century. A wonderful example of neo-Gothic is Jesuit Jesus Heart Cathedral. Another prominent city architecture monument was Temple Synagogue.
