As every historically meaningful city, Chernivtsi is proud of numerous monuments in its squares and arteries. These reflect different phases of the community development, starting from the Austro-Hungarian Empire through Russian, Romanian and Soviet times to today's independent Ukraine. In different times, they were erected to commemorate outstanding people and events of different levels, be that the first Chernivtsi mayor or the Austrian Emperor, soldiers who died in international missions or those who won the World War II. Chernivtsi monuments remind or prominent artists and luminaries of Ukrainian, Romanian, Jewish, Armenian, Czech and many other cultures. As the city is devoted to revive its historical significance, the number of monuments is growing - and that is a good sign!
