From 1934 to 1939, the town, which at that time was part of the Second Polish Republic, was officially called Kosów Huculski.HistoryInitially a small Hutsul settlement with a remnants of a small castle destroyed by the Turks, Kosiv was founded on the Rybnica River. The first written mention of it is in the Grant Charter of Lithuanian Duke Svitrigaila, on September 31, 1424. At that time, the village was in the territory of what is today Old Kosiv. In 1565, not far from modern-day Kosiv, Starosta of Sniatyn, Tenczynski founded a town named Rukiv (Polish: Rukow). Polish Crown Hetman Jerzy Jazlowiecki, the owner of Kuty, later destroyed it.
