Maps on this website

An ethnographic map of Bukovina, showing the borders of Bukovina, when it was a crown land of the Austrian empire (1775 to 1918) is now available on this website. Population figures are based on the census of 1910. Because there is so much detail to present on this map, we are providing the map in two different sizes:

  1. A reduced-size (49 KB) image is available, in order to allow for faster downloading, and to provide a map that can be printed on a single page. The reduction of this file's size unavoidably causes some blurring of the image, which makes most of the smaller place names unreadable.

  2. A full-sized version of this map is available, for anyone seeking to view all the details of the original image. Please note that because of the large size of this image (711 KB), it may be slow to download, and it will require scrolling within the browser window to see it all.

Maps from the MapQuest Interactive Mapping Service

The following maps have been provided by the MapQuest Interactive Mapping Service. We have saved a static copy of each of these maps on our website, along with some explanations of each view. A link to the MapQuest site has been provided with each image, to view the same map fully interactively.

This series of five maps zooms in from an overview of Europe to close-ups of northern and southern Bukovina.

If these maps do not provide the view you want, we encourage you to explore on your own by visiting the website for the MapQuest Interactive World Atlas, using the link below. Some hints about using their maps:

  • Although the map will display modern names of towns, the atlas will also recognize some old names when you use the Find menu.
  • The atlas lists more towns than they can display on any one map. If you don't see the town you want, trying zooming in or re-centering the map.
  • Sometimes the map will find a town but still not display the town's name. It will still display a star over the town you have chosen to center on.
  • If you search for a town and the atlas finds more than one town with that name, you will be shown a set of thumbnail maps for all of these matches.
  • If you think we're excited about this atlas being available, you're right! :-)
