A World Heritage Site, Residence of Bukovynian Metropolitans - Chernivtsi National University represents a study in multicultural architecture, featuring characteristics of Islamic, Byzantine, and Gothic styles harmoniously combined.

Walk inside the buildings to admire the intricate marble and wood decorations. You'll encounter exceptional acoustic chambers, and be sure to look up as you walk--ceiling decorations adorn almost every corner of the residence.

  • Absolutely wonderful location in Chernivtsi. A “must see” for visitors to this area. Try to set up a tour or be very patient with the security guards as they try to assist you.

  • It rained quite heavily after we had been there for an hour, but the grounds are lovely, there is a really nice park/garden and the chapel is spectacular!

  • It's actually an awesome landmark. Spectacularly huge buildings, very well made area with an old little botanic garden, awesome campus buildings and a garden. The guards by the entrance who sell the tickets are actually kinda rude, but it's only a short bit of time, and then you enjoy the surroundings.
  • Marvelous architecture! UNESCO object. Lucky students who can study here. A little bit more attention to the touristic side and the former Residence will be the best place to visit in Chernivtsi.
