Hlyniany is a town steeped in history spanning hundreds of years. Hlyniany once lay on important trade and strategic military routes, relying on them for its development. Polish Kings, Lithuanian Princes, and Ukrainian Hetmans used to sojourn in Hlyniany. This town has withstood the diversity of events that occurred throughout Galicia's turbulent history. Another feather in the town’s cap is its unique spirituality inspired by God.
Today, Hlyniany is proud of its rich history and important landmarks, and even more so of its great citizens who have earned both respect and admiration. The town has an abundance of sacred sites, and spectacular and breathtaking Galician landscapes, and is one of the listed historic towns and settlements of Ukraine. A number of industrial businesses operate in the town, together with a hospital, a paediatric clinic, a comprehensive secondary school, music school, shops, and catering and other services. Every day Hlyniany extends a warm welcome to people from all over Ukraine, who come here to visit, among other places, The Dormition of The Holy Virgin Church. This shrine is one of Galicia's oldest wooden churches. This church is also famous for a miracle witnessed by the locals: one day the church's old image of Christ's Crucifixion, blackened by time, appeared miraculously restored and shimmery with gold. Historical and Cultural Landmarks of Hlyniany
Hlyniany's carpets and rugs are the finest examples of traditions that have been handed down from one generation to the next, and are still retained today.
