The city was first mentioned in a chronicle in 1238 as Galich Mer’skii. In the 13th century it was the center of the Principality of Galich, whose first prince was Aleksandr Nevskii’s brother Konstantin Iaroslavich. Early in the second half of the 14th century the city was annexed to the Principality of Moscow. Galich became a district center of Kostroma Province in 1788.

Galich was founded in the 14th century, at the end of which it was seized by Polish feudal lords. In 1772 it passed to Austrian rule, and in 1919 it was returned to Poland. Since 1939, Galich has been a city in the Ukrainian SSR. It has the following industries: vegetable-drying, cheese-making, building-materials, reinforced-concrete, and brick-making.

The first mention of Galich appears in the Hypatian Chronicle in 1140. In 1144 it became the capital of the Galich Principality, and in 1199 under Prince Roman it became the capital of the Galich-Volynia Principality. In 1241, Galich was ravaged by the Tatars and it fell into decay. Surviving are the Panteleimon Church (built before 1200, white stone with carved details, reconstructed in the 17th century), parts of the walls of the white-stone Uspenskii Cathedral (1157), and remnants of the city ramparts and moats. Excavations in 1939-41, 1951-52, and 1955 have established that Galich came into being in the tenth century and greatly expanded in the 12th. Dwellings, handicraft shops, and ten white-stone temples of the 12th and 13th centuries have been discovered.

A pesar de la problematizacion en torno a la clasificacion de textos literarios centroamericanos ya sea que se consideren textos de posguerra, posrevolucionarios y/o de posregionalismo (Mackenbach, 2004), en las ultimas decadas del siglo XX, existe evidencia de un corpus literario asociado a diversos autores centroamericanos, como Manlio Argueta, Horacio Castellanos Moya, Franz Galich y Claudia Hernandez, entre otros, cuya estetica presenta ciertas tematicas y estrategias literarias convergentes que varios criticos, como Alexandra Ortiz (2002), Rafael Lara (1999), Anabella Acevedo (2000) y Beatriz Cortez (2010), han denominado literatura de posguerra.
