Chernivtsi Museum of Bukovynian Jewish History and Culture

The Museum of Bukovynian Jewish History and Culture invites you to make a trip through time and feel the atmosphere of Jewish life in Bukovina in 1774-1941. The exhibition reflects the foundation, expansion and latterly decline of the Jewish community in the area. You’ll get the opportunity to see the unique documents and materials, authentic objects of the everyday life, exhibits of sacred objects and also you’ll get to know about the rich Jewish architectural heritage of the region.

Chernivtsi University

Is the leading Ukrainian institution for higher education in northern Bukovina, in Chernivtsi, a city in southwest Ukraine.The University was founded as a Franz-Josefs Universität in 1875 on the basis of the Czernowitz Higher Theological School. Originally, the main language of instruction was German with separate departments for Ukrainian and Romanian language and literature. During the period of Austro-Hungarian rule the university operated three faculties: Orthodox theology, law and philosophy. At the time the majority of the students were Jewish and German Austrians, while Ukrainians and Romanians comprised for about 20%–25% of the student body.

Czernowitz Synagogue

Was a domed, Moorish Revival synagogue built in 1873 in what is now Chernivtsi, Ukraine. At the time it was built, the city was known as Czernowitz and was part of Austria-Hungary. The architect was Julian Zachariewicz (1873–78).The synagogue was confiscated and closed by the Soviet government after it gained Northern Bukovina (of which Czernowitz is the largest city) from Romania in 1940. The building was burned by German and Romanian soldiers in 1941, after Nazi-allied Romania retook the city. In 1959, the outer walls were used to partially reconstruct the building for use as a movie theater called "Zhovten" ("October"), and the structure was renamed "Chernivtsi" in early 1990.The building lost its dome and retains very little of its former appearance.

Chernivsti Museum of Arts

Near the town hall. Exhibits local art from the 19th and 20th Centuries as well as regional applied arts.This museum focuses on the Ukrainian emmigration from Bukovina, but also shows some cultural exponents from the German diaspora in Chernivtsi.
