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:
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
- 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! :-)
