Olyka is an urban-type settlement in Kivertsi Raion, Volyn Oblast, Ukraine. It is located east of Lutsk on the Putilovka Rriver. Population:.HistoryThe village of Olyka was founded in early Middle Ages as one of the villages belonging to the Kievan Rus'. It was first mentioned in 1149. In the 14th century it was conquered by Grand Duchy of Lithuania and in 1569, in the effect of the Union of Lublin became part of Poland.In the Grand Duchy of Lithuania the village grew rapidly and became a centre of local magnates, initially the family of Kiška and after 1533 - the Radziwills. In second half of the 16th century the town became one of the most important centres of Calvinism in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. Its growth was halted by the Chmielnicki Uprising of 1648, during which the town was captured by Cossacks, plundered and burnt. However, it was soon rebuilt and in 1654 it received city rights. As the main seat of one of the branches of the influential Radziwill family, Olyka became one of the most important political and trade centres of whole Volhynia.
