Located in the northern side of Lviv, the city's main landmark is the Agrarian University which was established on 9 January 1856 by Halych Economic Society during the Second Polish Republic when Dubliany as a village was part of Lwow Voivodeship as Dublany Agricultural Academy with the only existing Polish-language agricultural academy.

Most of them settled in former German village Drachenbrunn near Wroclaw in Silesia. They renamed the village into Dublany (since 1947 - Wojnow, now a district of Wroclaw). The local Roman Catholic kosciol (Polish church) that was the first known religious building in village built in 1885–1890, since 1990 has been passed to the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church. During the Soviet period the temple was used as a sports gym for the agricultural institute. The first Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church, Dormition of the Theotokos, was built in Dubliany only in 1912 and for long period of time local Greek-Catholic population traveled to the neighboring village (about 2 km) of Malekhiv.In 1910 in Dubliany was built a train station on a railroad Lviv–Kivertsi (Lwow–Kiwerce). In 1967 the village was granted the status of urban type settlement.
