Zavaliv had a stone-built Polish Roman Catholic church and Ukrainian Greek-Catholic Church of Saint Nicholas the Wonderworker. The history of intelligent, highly cultured family of Dmytro Huzar (1823–1908) is extremely interesting. He was the pastor of the village Zavaliv and now rests in peace on the village's cemetery, together with his beloved wife. Lubomyr Husar is his great-grandson. Dmytro Huzar arrived to Zavaliv in 1856. Served there in the parish until 1908. At the moment of arrival he already had two sons, Volodymyr and Yevhen. His son Lev (grandfather of Lubomyr Husar) and daughter Olha (in future - writer, translator, wife of Volodymyr Levytskyi) were born in Zavaliv. His Eminent Beatitude Lubomyr Husar visited Zavaliv and prayed for his relatives in the cemetery.Ukrainian writer Ivan Franko visited the village during the Easter holiday of 1883 and a month later, he wrote an article about two remarkable icons of local St. Nicholas church. Until 1990 Zavaliv belonged to Berezhany Raion. Until 18 July 2020, Zavaliv belonged to Pidhaitsi 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 Pidhaitsi Raion was merged into Ternopil Raion.
