Photographer's Note

The earliest written mention of the village Folticeni is from March 1490, and the second from March 1554, when Moldavian Prince Alexandru Lăpuşneanu awarded the estate and the village bearing the aforesaid name to Moldoviţa Monastery.
Fălticeni was first mentioned as an urban settlement in August 1780 as Tārgul Şoldăneşti (Town of Şoldăneşti), after the name of a local boyar's estate, in a document issued by the chancellery of Prince Constantin Moruzi. In March 1826, an edict issued by Prince Ioan Sturdza changed the name of the town to Fălticeni.
Fălticeni was bombed by the Bolsheviks during World War I.[2]
Between 1929-1950 Fălticeni was the capital of former Baia County. From 1950 to present the city is part of Suceava County.
