Suceava (Romanian: [suˈt͡ʃe̯ava]) is the largest city and the seat of Suceava County, situated in the historical region of Moldavia, north-eastern Romania, and at the crossroads of Central and Eastern Europe respectively. During the late Middle Ages, more specifically from 1388 to 1564, the city was the third capital of the Principality of Moldavia. Between 1775 and 1918, Suceava was the third most populous urban settlement of the Duchy of Bukovina (German: Herzogtum Bukowina), a constituent province of the Austrian Empire and subsequently a crown land within Austria-Hungary, being solely surpassed by Cernăuți (German: Czernowitz) and Rădăuți (German: Radautz), both located to the north. Throughout this period of time, Suceava fulfilled the task of an important, strategically-located commercial border town with the then Romanian Old Kingdom (German: Altreich), receiving a large influx of German-speaking settlers in the process of the Josephine colonization (a community which has dwindled to a very feeble number in contemporary times). After 1918, along with the rest of Bukovina, Suceava became part of the enlarged Kingdom of Romania. Nowadays, within the economic framework of the European Union, the city is one of the most significant economic, touristic, and historical urban centres of the Romanian North-East development region.
