Halych is a historic city on the Dniester River in western Ukraine. The city gave its name to the Principality of Halych, the historic province of Galicia, and the Kingdom of Galicia–Volhynia, of which it was the capital until the early 14th century, when the seat of the local rulers moved to Lviv.
Nowadays, Halych is a small town located only on one part of the territory of the former Galician capital, although it has preserved its name. It belongs to Ivano-Frankivsk Raion of Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast. It hosts the administration of Halych urban hromada, one of the hromadas of Ukraine. Halych lies 26 km north of the oblast capital, Ivano-Frankivsk. Population: 6,155.
