The r-process nucleosynthesis in the Universe is constrained by observations of chemical abundances of the Solar System and those of old stars that should record the products of the r-process events in the early Universe. This review provides a brief overview of the observational technique to determine chemical abundances of stars. Tar-gets of observations are stars in different populations of the Milky Way Galaxy and sur-rounding dwarf galaxies, providing different kind of constraints on the understanding of the r-process. Recent progress in observational studies to identify the r-process sites are also reviewed.
