The village is located on the Krylos mountain, where there was a princely child of ancient Galich , traces of which are visible on the rock. Krylos was called Galich in the XII-XIV centuries and was the center of the largest feudal center of Western Russia - the Galician-Volyn principality . The first mention in the Ipatiev Chronicle of Galich dates back to 1140 .
During the excavations, a posad was revealed, and a detinet placed on a hill, which was fortified with moats and ramparts. Under the hill was an unfortified settlement, inhabited by artisans and merchants. The territory north of the detinets was occupied by suburban boyar and monastery fortified estates.
Soon after the capture of Galicia by the Poles, the city lost its position, Galich was moved to another place and there remained a rural settlement.
