Galizien location.png

(Eastern) Galicia was a region of Eastern Europe located in parts of present-day southeastern Poland and western Ukraine. The region of Galicia included the major cities of Krakow, Lwow (Lviv), Stanislawow (Ivano-Frankivsk), and Tarnopol (Ternopil), and the region was once an integral part of Poland-Lithuania and the Interwar period-era Poland. The region was taken over by the Austrian Empire during the partitions of Poland in the 18th century, and it would later be taken over by the Soviet Union in the years following World War II. Galicia became a part of the Ukrainian SSR after the war, while the Poles would gain more lands further west.
