Drohobych is first mentioned in 1387, and thereafter was part of Poland. The city received Magdeburg rights in 1422. The 1772 partition of Poland gave Drohobycz to Austria. Following the First World War, the city was returned to Poland, but the Second World War made the city part of the Soviet Union until that nation's breakup.
