Chernivtsi. Chapter 1

More I travel to the different Ukrainian cities, more I understand how wonderful Ukraine is. And this time I'll show You my photos from fine trip to amazing and charming Chernivtsi!!! Chernivtsi is 605-year-old city, crossroad of Ukrainian, Moldavian, Austrian, Romanian, Jewish, German, Hungarian, Armenian, Polish, Czech, Turkish, Russian, Italian, Chilean cultures, etc. Chernivtsi - the centre of Bukovyna, Ukrainian ethnographic region of Western Ukraine. 
I really guess that Chernivsti with its numerous landmarks, architectural masterpieces, parks and squares is must-visit Ukrainian city as for all Ukrainian citizens as for all foreigners, travelling into Ukraine.
