Finding Galicia’s changing borders can be an interesting tourist experience and an exciting lesson in history of Eastern Europe. Living up to its name – Ukraine means “the land at the border” – the country’s western frontiers near Lviv have had many old and new borders crisscrossing the land.

Our Borders of Galicia Gallery is about the shifting borders of the land that in the last century has found itself being part of many countries, one after the other. Some of the pictures in the gallery are of the borders that can not be found on the current maps. And some photos show the state lines of today.
