It is a major rail junction and a center of the Drohobych oil region. The economy depends on machine building, engineering, and various light industries. An old Ukrainian settlement, Stryy was chartered in 1431. It became a flourishing trade center from the 15th to 16th cent. but declined in the 17th cent.
