Visiting of this place was a great experience! Very nice! I strongly recommend to order guided tour around the University - it gives more information. It is difficult to describe feeling of the University during teaching period and outstending architecture of this place.

We have been visiting Khotyn in August 2016. It is really worth to go and see it. The Khotyn Fortress in Ukrainian: Хотинська фортеця, is a historical complex located on the right bank of the Dniester River in Khotyn, Chernivtsi Oblast of western Ukraine. The Construction of Khotyn fortress started in 1325, and it was pretty lasting process over years of 1380s and in the 1460s.
Just for your info lots of historical adventure movies were filmed in the Khotyn fortress: Zakhar Berkut , The Arrows of Robin Hood, Old Fortress , d'Artagnan and Three Musketeers , The Black Arrow , Taras Bulba etc.
The fortress looks really majestic. There is a fee for car parking and fee to enter the fortress.
Being honest – the best view of the fortress is view from outside as inside they started renovation process in modern style and all features of ancient time have been lost. The landscape is very beautiful. You also have an opportunity to buy a unique Khotyn gifts at the Khotyn souvenir market which is situated right at the parking lot.
Definitely recommend this place to visit!

We stayed at a hotel on this square with a view of city hall in November and returned again last weekend. In front of the city hall is a plaza with a Fountain and trees.
The city hall is of Hapsburg architecture. Be there a few minutes before noon for the trumpeter. Nice to keep old traditions.

Ringed by lovely looking buildings, (except the Romanian built building on the right of the square which does not keep at all with the rest of the buildings), this is a nice little park to stroll around but, well that's it. There is not much really to see here apart from the quaint little opera at the end.

This Cathedral is unusual in that its four cupolas are crooked and are leaning to the main dome. If one stares at them for too long, one can feel a bit woozy as if they had been drinking. While there are several stories relating to the crooked cupolas, the real reason is that it was modelled after a historical Romanian Cathedral which had two crooked cupolas.
While we could walk around the Cathedral grounds, the Cathedral itself was closed. It is situated near several other churches and unlike many churches during the Soviet era it was allowed to remain open.
A very unusual church in the centre of Chernivtsi.

This Cathedral, although non-operating for years and in poor condition, has nevertheless always been among my favourite places in Chernivtsi. But until my most recent trip in September I never was lucky to get inside.
According to the info on the fence surrounding the Cathedral, it has been returned to the Rome-Catholic community. So the reconstruction can hopefully be expected here, sooner or later. As of Sep 2013, all works were only conducted by volunteers.
They gradually clear the Cathedral off its Soviet Archive past and try to restore the original looks. So if you come any time soon, with a very good deal of imagination you can see what it was as both an Archive and a Cathedral before.
When there was an archive here, the church was artificially divided into three floors for the needs of bureaucracy. The organ was thrown away. The original stained glass windows were substituted with simple glass. Tiled floor was hidden and frescoes on the walls were covered with typical Soviet dull painting.
Now the volunteers are slowly removing these artificial floors, and have discovered the remaining original frescoes and stucco works, and reopened the stained glass tops of the windows.
They were kind enough to give us a free and perfectly informative tour around the Cathedral. We have ascended to the upper levels and could estimate the height of the Cathedral and how much work is still to be done...
Another remarkable thing about this place is its crypt where the volunteers have discovered what they preliminary estimated as the burial ground of Polish soldiers of WWI.
So although Jesus Heart Cathedral remains in a poor condition, it was nevertheless a unique experience that we had visiting it.

Chernivtsi Art Museum was established in 1988. It is located in the building of former Savings Bank (1901), which is one of the best examples of the Viennese Secession – a monument of national importance. The core of the museum's collection consists of items collected by Chernivtsi Ethnographic Museum. Replenishment of collections took place during research expeditions, as well as from charitable gifts of individual artists and patrons. Funds enumerate more than 10 thousand exhibits; most of them are represented in the permanent display.Art of Bukovyna of XVII-XX centuries that range from home icons by craftsmen to monumental art works of professional artists make up the foundation of the museum funds. Here there are collections of Bukovynian carpets, embroidery, Easter eggs, works of jewellers and woodcarvers, etc.
The Chernivtsi Regional Art Museum is the premier museum in the city of Chernivtsi . It is housed in a period building built in 1901 for the Director of the Savings Bank. Like many of these old homes I do not believe there is an elevator so be prepared to do some stairs as the museum is spread out over at least three floors.
The museum concentrates on the time when this region of Ukraine was better known as Bukovina/Bykovina. The museum is very well arranged with rooms showcasing exhibits of Bukovinian textiles, jewelry, art, furniture, sculptures and paintings.
There is a tribute to the Ukrainian writer/poet Yuriy Fedkovych (1834-1888) who was the editor of the first Ukrainian language newspaper in Bukovina. Ukrainian writers and poets are considered great patriots in Ukraine as they promoted the rebirth of the Ukrainian language. The Ukrainian language had been stifled by the occupying powers in the 17 and 18th centuries. For most of the 19th century publishing in the Ukrainian language was prohibited so patriots such as Yuriy Fedkovych are held in high esteem in Ukraine where it was dangerous to carry out this activity.
The Chernivtsi Regional Art Museum is located in Tsentraina Square on the right of the Chernvitsi City Hall. The cost was 9 Hryvnia although the website states 7 Hryvinia. Regardless this is a pittance as it equals around .55 Canadian. Donations are always welcome as funds for the arts are in short supply in Ukraine. If you find yourself in Chernvitsi I would recommend this museum. It is a great way to familiarize yourself with the history of Bukovina.
