This region consisted of 15 villages. Together with the rest of Bukovina, Câmpulung Moldovenesc was under the rule of the Habsburg Monarchy (later Austria-Hungary) from 1775 to 1918. Câmpulung was in the Austrian part of the empire after the compromise of 1867, head of the district with the same name, one of the 9 Bezirkshauptmannschaften in Bukovina province.[2] Other main district cities were Dorna Watra (Vatra Dornei) and Wama (Vama) in 1900.[3] Later, between 1925–1950, Câmpulung Moldovenesc was the capital of the former Câmpulung County, the most extensive county in Bukovina.
