Chernivtsi is a city further south in western Ukraine which has been in many countries. The Principality of Moldova, Ottoman Empire, Habsburg, Romania, Soviet Union and now Ukraine. Like Lviv, the city is full of beautiful buildings, and interesting enough generally in better shape than in Lviv, but it still has to earn the same reputation. The most remarkable site in Chernivtsi is the university, constructed in the 1880s, a marvellous piece of architecture. This is one of the university buildings.
