MONUMENTS



Chernivtsi is the center of Bukovyna, which saw a number of monument installations through the last 600 years of its history. It’s hard to say how many monuments are present in the whole region now but its center can be proud of at least 20 most remarkable items.

 

Sometimes Chernivtsi residents are somewhat ironical about them as the city has been under seven empires, each of which installed its own monuments. Often it happened so that the coming empire removed installations made by its predecessor. That was especially true for the central square of the city which saw Austrian eagle, Romanian bull and Soviet leader V.I.Lenin through the XIX-XX centuries.

 

Below you can see most of Chernivtsi monuments – both epoch-making and newly installed
