We invite you to visit Chernivtsi Sightseeing Tour in our comfortable city of Chernivtsi, “Little Vienna”, to walk in the parks and squares, enjoy its cultural heritage with architectural masterpieces of the Habsburg epoch, see the national wealth of the city residents of various ethnic groups.

You will discover the history of the European city which is situated on the spot where the roads from Europe and Asia cross each other. It’s a tiny capital of Europe, where Sunday began with Shubert to ended with a duel, where the pavement was swept with bouquets of roses and one could find more bookstalls than taverns.

Chernivtsi belongs to one of those rare cities of Ukraine, which no doubt has its own unique atmosphere. Perhaps due to this very atmosphere, Chernivtsi gave the world such a wonderful literature school and showed an example of a rare mixture of such interesting and at the same time different cultures.


Our excursion starts from the Central Square of Chernivtsi. This square was founded in 1787. There used to be seven hotels. Seven streets diverge like sunbeams in different directions from the square. Seven states at different times hung out their flags here.

The building of the Museum of Fine Arts together with the City Hall enrich the Central Square with their special histories and interesting fates.
