Overflowing with natural wonder and beauty, the Chernivtsi Oblast is a popular escape for nature and trekking enthusiasts. Created on 7 August 1940, the region has always relied on agriculture for its economy, and breathtaking farms of rolling green hills decorate the landscapes from one town to the next. The Carpathian Mountains that loom over the Chernivtsi Oblast complete the picture of incomparable magnificence.
