The town of Skhidnytsia is located in the Drohobytsky district of the Lviv region, surrounded by forests and mountain reservoirs at an altitude of more than 700 meters. The settlement was first mentioned in the 14th century. Initially, Skhidnytsia was a part of the Principality of Galicia-Volhynia, then Poland, then it became part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, ZUNR, again Poland, Ukrainian SSR, and then – independent Ukraine.

In the 19th century, oil reserves were discovered, then they decreased significantly. It turned out that the town has a large supply of mineral water. The first sanatorium based on local mineral waters “Karpaty” (currently called “Eastern Carpathians”) was built in 1970.


Since then, people have been coming here for rest and treatment. You can rent housing in the private sector or buy a ticket to a sanatorium, where various procedures are performed.

Not far from the city center are the ruins of Tustan fortress. Mentions of it can be found in the chronicles of 1340. In the summer, a festival of medieval culture is held near the rock fortress. The Museum of Omelyan Stotsky, who was the first researcher of local mineral waters, operates in Skhidnytsia itself. 5 kilometers from Skhidnytsia, in the settlement of Novy Kropyvnyk, there is a brick Mykolaiv church from 1695 with a wooden bell tower from 1821. In Skhidnytsia itself there are two modern churches: the wooden Castle or Church of St. Nicholas of 1999 and the brick church of St. Andrew the Apostle, built in 2012.

Fans of green tourism will like the landscape park “Stuzhitsa” with an area of more than 4,000 hectares. You can admire beech forests, breathe fresh air. If you reach a height of 1200 meters, you can see alpine meadows.
