Kostryschiwka (Ukrainian Кострижівка ; Russian Кострыжовка / Kostryschowka , German rarely Kostryziwka , Romanian Costrijeni or Costrijiuca , Polish Kostryzówka ) is an urban-type settlement in the Ukrainian Chernivtsi Oblast with about 2,800 inhabitants. It is located in the north of the oblast on the border with Ternopil Oblast on the right bank of the Dniester , opposite the city of Salishchyky and about 42 kilometers north of Chernivtsi .
The settlement was mentioned in writing for the first time in 1742 and belonged to the Principality of Moldova until 1774 . After that, until the end of the First World War , it was part of Austria-Hungary in the crown land of Bukovina . In 1898 the place got a railway connection in the course of the construction of the local railway Lużan – Zaleszczyki , after the end of the First World War it came to Romania (in the district of Cernăuţi ) and became a border town with Poland. Because of the annexation of northern Bukovina on August 2, 1940, it became part of the Soviet Union (between 1941–1944 to Romania) and has been part of Ukraine since 1991.
In 1959 it was granted the status of an urban-type settlement, at the same time the previously independent municipality of Luka was incorporated into the settlement area.
