Halych

Halych (Ukrainian and Russian: Галич, German: Halytsch, Polish: Halicz, Lithuanian: Halyčas) is a historic city on the Dniester River in western Ukraine. The town gave its name to the historic province and the Kingdom of Galicia–Volhynia, of which it was the capital until the early 14th century, when the seat of the local princes was moved to Lviv. In 1340-1772, the province included the Ruthenian Voivodeship.

Today Halych is a small city and is located right next to the former capital of the Galicia Kingdom although it preserved its former name. It also is the administrative center of the Halych Raion (district) of the Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast (province). It lies 26 km (16 mi) north of the oblast capital, Ivano-Frankivsk. Halych's population is estimated at 6,406.
