Ternopil Oblast is an oblast (province) of Ukraine. Its administrative center is Ternopol, through which flows the Seret River, a tributary of the Dniester.
Zalischyky is a small town located on the Dniester River in the southern part of the oblast.
The Zalischyky Raion is a sub-division of the Ternopil Oblast. The administrative centre and largest town is Zalischyky. The rest of the district’s population lives in one of 35 village councils or 53 rural settlements.
Before the Second World War, the area around Zalischyky became a major centre of archeological attention. Near various villages, especially Koshylivtsi, a little north of the Dniester, excavations were carried out which uncovered statues, coins, and other artifacts from as far back as the Neolithic Cucuteni-Trypillian culture, and extending through the period of the Roman Empire and the Völkerwanderung period in the Early Middle Ages.
