Bukovina (Romanian: Bucovina; Ukrainian: Буковина/Bukovyna; German and Polish: Bukowina) is a historical region in Europe, currently divided between Ukraine and Romania, located on the northern slopes of the central Eastern Carpathians and the adjoining plains.

Historically part of the Principality of Moldavia, the territory of what became known as Bukovina was, from 1775 to 1918, an administrative division of the Austrian Empire. After World War I, Bukovina became part of Romania. In 1940, as a result of the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact, the northern half of Bukovina was annexed by the Soviet Union.

NOTE: the name "Bukovina" also bears many settlements in the Czech Republic and Slovakia: Bukovina (Blansko District), Bukovina (Liptovský Mikuláš District), Bukovina (Borová), Bukovina (Bzenica), Bukovina (Černilov), Bukovina (Kralovice), Bukovina (Mírová pod Kozákovem), Bukovina (Nová Baňa), Bukovina (Turnov) and Bukovina (Vítězná).}}
