BUKOVYNA

This region is also classified as a Western Ukrainian Region. The landscape is flat in the north and hilly in the south. For much of their history, Bukovynians have been separated from Ukraine and have been under Moldavian, Hungarian, Turkish and Austrian rule.

The folk dress is very narrow in this region, as well. This helps to accentuate the sleek line of the traditional choreography of this region such as stamping combinations and upward knee thrusts. Much of the decoration on these costumes shares attributes with Byzantine ornamentation.
