The old areas of Galicia used to be a part of Austria-Hungarian Empire until 1918. The region has until now a characteristic flair and a great lot of undiscovered beauty. Until World War II it had a large proportion of Jewish population. Jewish stories and songs refer to it. There are old centres of Chasidism, synagogues, cemeteries and other sites remembering the multicultural by-gone times.
