Kitsman Raion

Кіцманський Район

Kitsman raion is located to the northwest of Chernivtsi.  It is a lovely, hilly area with lots of rivers.  The regional center, Kitsman, was the birthplace of both Volodymyr Ivasiuk (renowned popular composer) and Ani Lorak (current popular singer and Eurovision also-ran). Interestingly, they were both born in the same house, although decades apart.

The area is ethnically Bukovynian, and the designs of the pysanky reflect this.  The region is also known for its beautiful embroidery, including, in modern times, beaded embroidery.
