Arms of Romania.gif
The principalities of Wallachia and Moldavia Southeastern Europe, bordering the Black Sea, between Bulgaria and Ukraine were for centuries under the suzerainty of the Turkish Ottoman Empire. They secured their autonomy in 1856 and united in 1859 and a few years later adopted the new name of Romania. The Kingdom of Romania gained official recognition as an independent country with the Treaty of Berlin in 1878.

Bukovina Districts 1910.jpg

Bukovina (Bukowina) is a historical region on the northern slopes of the northeastern Carpathian Mountains and the adjoining plains. It is currently split between Romania and Ukraine. The name Bukovina came into official use in 1775 with the region's annexation from the Principality of Moldavia to the possessions of the Habsburg Monarchy, which became Austrian Empire in 1804, and Austria-Hungary in 1867. Nowadays in Ukraine the name is unofficial, but is common when referring to the Chernivtsi Oblast as over 2/3 of the oblast is the northern part of Bukovina. In Romania the term Northern Bucovina is sometimes synonymous to the entire Chernivtsi Oblast of Ukraine, and (Southern) Bucovina to Suceava County of Romania.


Romania has 41 counties (judet - singular, judete - plural) and 1 municipality* (municipiu). The word judet is usually seen in the form judeţul, which means "the district."
