Nepolokivtsi is a village / small town in the district Cozmeni Chernivtsi region, today in Ukraine, before WW2 in North Bukowina, Romania.
The town is situated at an altitude of 194 meters on the Prut River. 
It is located at a distance of 30 km north west from Chernovtsy, in Northern Bukowina.
It used to be the last train station in Bukowina
before crossing the border to Galizia and Poland.
There were two Jewish communities in Nepolokivtsi pre WW2: Most of the Jews lived in the village itself.
A small community lived in the train station neighbourhood of Nepolokivtsi, which during the Romanian period was called "Grigore Ghica Voda".
