Chernivtsi

Like Lviv, Chernivtsi has a Habsburg heritage. Yet, it has quite a different history. The area was also once part of Kievan Rus. The first recorded mention of the city is from 1406 and at the time, this was the Principality of Moldavia which later was conquered in whole by the Ottoman Empire, and so was Chernivtsi. Habsburg grabbed northern Moldavia in 1774. After WWI, Chernivtsi found itself in Romania, but WWII brought Chernivtsi under Soviet rule.

Like Lviv, Chernivtsi has many fine buildings, many from the Habsburg era where it under the name of Czernowitz was the third-largest city in the empire. Interesting enough, restoration of the old buildings have come further in Chernivtsi than in Lviv, but Chernivtsi is quieter than Lviv. And the T-shirts on sale are pretty lame.
