Things to do in Bucovina
The painted monasteries of Bucovina are the obvious draw but there's much more to see in the area and Bucovina's a great base for a day trip to Chernivtsi over the border in Ukraine, but still in the historic region of Bucovina and compared to both Vienna and Jerusalem. There's significant Jewish heritage to be explored in the area too. You can also use Bucovina as a starting point for a two or three day trip to Romania's ultra-traditional Maramures region, finishing up in Transylvania. When we send you your customized itinerary you will be able to choose additional excursions to included in your vacation package or consider for adding later.
