One of the main attractions of Chernivtsi city is St. Nicholas Church with the original “twisted” domes built in 1939. The architecture of the church reproduces the Romanian national style neorominesk. The prototype of the original design was the architecture of the church in Curtea de Arges.

The church is also called “Drunk church” because of its “twisted” domes, about which there are numerous legends. Address: Chernivtsi, Russkaya Str., 35. The photos were captured by av_otus.
