Located along the Romanian border, Chernivtsi is a city situated on the edge of the River Prut and on the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains, in Ukraine. Turks inhabited the city during a certain period so there are many places that bear a Turkish name. Among places to visit are the pink Holy Spirit Orthodox Cathedral, located on Holovna Street, the blue town hall on Turkish Street, the fountain in the Turkish Square, and the Turkish bridge. Today however there is a small amount of Turks left in Ukraine. For eating and drinking and shopping, head to Olha Kobylianska Street. Make sure to explore the Chernivtsi University building, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The building, which was damaged in World War II, bears the traces of Byzantine and Moorish architecture. Winters in Chernivtsi are cold and snowy while summers are hot. In the spring the weather is usually cool. We would recommend visiting the city in the summer. You can reach Chernivtsi by train from other touristic cities in Ukraine, like Kiev or Lvov. You can use taxis or minibuses for urban transportation.
After closure of the airport in Chernivtsi, those who want to go to the city are flying to Ivano Frankivsk Airport. Passengers often use the taxi to go to Chernivtsi from the airport, while some prefer renting a car.
The taxis that you can take directly from the airport without any reservation can be a bit expensive, thus you can negotiate with the drivers. The cheapest way to use a taxi at Ivano Frankivsk Airport is by booking online.
You can rent a car, with a driver, from Avis, Hertz, Europcar, Budget and Alamo companies that are serving from 07:00 until 20:00. However, those who are familiar with the city can rent a car without a driver and travel between the two cities.Last Updated: 29 Oct 2017
