Description of Galich

Galich (an old Russian Galich Mersky) - a city (from 1159) in the Kostroma region of Russia, an independent municipality - the urban district Galich, the administrative center of the Galich municipal district. The city is included in the list of settlements of Russia with the official status of "historical". Population - 16,922 people. (2017).

The territory of Galich since ancient times was inhabited by man. This is evidenced by such ancient Neolithic sites as the Galich Hill. The founding date is usually considered 1159 year. During the reign of Prince Yury Dolgoruky, who at that time strengthened the borders of the Rostov-Suzdal principality, Galich was called upon to play the role of an outpost of North-Eastern Russia in the development of the North and Vyatka land.

However, in written sources, Galich was first mentioned under the year 1237, when the Laurentian Chronicle indicated that the Tatars "capture everything all along Wolze Dooge and before Galich Mersky."
