History

Monuments from the early Bronze Age have been found near Pidvysoke. In 1524, certain Martin and his cousin Fedko (Theodore) having returned from the Turkish captivity, obtained rights for hereditary possession of Pidvysoke. In 1548 the village was owned by Jakub Wysocki and in 1578 Pidvysoke belonged to Ivan, son of Mykhaylo and Ivan, son of Vasko Pidvysotsky. In 1595 king Sigismund of Poland permitted to Ivan (Jan) Vysocki to establish here the town of Pidvysoke using Magdeburg privileges. In 1626 the town rights of Pidvysoke were reconfirmed by the Polish king. In 1626, 80% of the town was destroyed by the invasion of Crimean Tatars. In 1853 the stone Polish Roman Catholic church was built. The church was closed by Soviets but in 1991 it was renovated again and reconverted into Ukrainian Greek-Catholic church, still functioning today.Until 18 July 2020, Pidvysoke belonged to Berezhany Raion. The raion was abolished in July 2020 as part of the administrative reform of Ukraine, which reduced the number of raions of Ternopil Oblast to three. The area of Berezhany Raion was merged into Ternopil Raion.
