Bukovina was the easternmost "crownland" (a province or district
encompassing numerous cities and villages) of the Austrian Empire.
Today it is split between a portion of western Ukraine and northern
Romania. During Austrian times (pre-WWI), it became a prominent
center of Jewish and Yiddish culture.

The former capital of Bukovina, Czernowitz (today Chernivtsi), is
located in the Ukraine. More information on this city can be found
