Suceava

Capital of Moldavia during the Middle Ages (until 1565), the modern-day city of Suceava has little to show for its once royal status. Heavily industrialized and almost entirely rebuilt under communism, little of the old city remains, other than its historic churches and ruined castle. A center of tourism all the same due to its position in the heart of Bucovina, it has become gradually more developed and lively in recent years.
