Gagarin Street / (Гагарина)



The photo is by Jędrzej, taken in 2008.

Gagarina – looking down towards the station.


Google Maps uses the Haharin translation, I prefer Gagarin as it makes more sense for English speakers.

I’m assuming the street is named after Soviet astronaut Yuri Gagarin, streets are also named after him in Kharkiv and Dnipropetrovsk.

Gagarina is important as it goes past the railway station and will thus be my first Chernivtsi street when I arrive in September of this year.


Ion I. C. Brătianu was the prime minister of Romania on five occasions.


Station street, makes sense.
