Odesa is located in the far south of Ukraine, on the shores of the Black Sea.  Bukovyna is a large multi-ethnic region split between Rumania (Bucovina)) and Ukraine; its main city is Chernivtsi. (See map here). Examples of pysanky from the northern (північна) and southern (південна) parts of Bukovyna are given.

Одещина (Причорномор’я):  Odesa region (Black Sea region)

Буковина: Bukovyna

Note that Odesa is spelled with only one “s” in Ukrainian; the two “s” version is the Russian one.
