  • In the former Residence of Bukovynian Metropolitans now is located Chernivtsi National University. Huge, very impressive building with beautiful garden. Mus see in Chernivtsi!  more »
  • We went to Chernovtsy just to visit the university building. We got from the station by public transport with a change. People gathered near the entrance, we joined. A very talkative security guard brightened up the waiting time with incomprehensible riddles and stories. We gathered 7 people, and a tour guide came out to us. The cost of the tour was 80 UAH. (if there were more people, they would be paid 60). The girl led us around the territory, led us to the church, showed the most beautiful halls of the university. After the tour you could walk on your own and spend time in the park. I definitely recommend taking a tour! Amazing Ukrainian Hogwarts! I loved this place. Lucky students to study within the walls of such a university. By the way, this is only one of the buildings, there are new ones, they are scattered around the city.

  • An extraordinary university, but unfortunately, the administration does not know how to promote it properly to the foreignors. There are guided tours, though, in English or German, but you don't know when they take place, so you must wait for the guide to come. I suggest that a clear programme should be made in which the guided tours in international languages are listed.
  • Must see and feel the energy of this place! Such a great architecture and nice garden nearby.
