Rădăuți County was one of the historic counties of Bukovina, Romania. The county seat was Rădăuți.[1]


Following the Union of Bukovina with Romania decided by the General Congress of Bukovina on 15/28 November 191, the Rădăuți County was created on 18 December 1918 by the Decree No. 3715 for the administration of Bukovina.[2]

In 1925, according to the Law of Administrative Unification of 14 June 1925, the territory of the county was enlarged in the east with the former Siret County and in northwest with parts of the former Vijnița County.

In 1938, the county was abolished and incorporated into the newly formed Ținutul Suceava.[3]

In 1940, following the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact and the Soviet ultimatum on 26 June 1940, Northern Bukovina (including the north and northwestern parts of the Rădăuți County) was occupied by the Soviet Union and incorporated into the USSR (Chernivtsi Oblast, Ukrainian SSR). Rădăuți County (with its reduced territory) was re-established in September 1940 (after the fall of Carol II's regime) and completely re-instated (as part of the Bukovina Governorate) after Northern Bukovina was recovered by Romania in July 1941, following the invasion of the Soviet Union. Nevertheless, in August 1944 the Northern Bukovina was taken over again by the Soviet Army and the borders as of 1 January 1941 were confirmed by the 1947 Paris Peace Treaties.

Rădăuți County was ultimately abolished in 1950 by the Communist regime.[3]


Rădăuți County covered 2,360 km2[1] and was located in Bukovina. The territory that comprised Rădăuți County is now included in Suceava County, while its northwestern part now belongs to Ukraine. In the interwar period, the county neighbored Storojineț County to the north, Dorohoi County to the east, Suceava and Câmpulung to the south, Maramureș County to the southwest, and Poland (Stanisławów Voivodeship) to the west and northwest.[1]
