Both of the branches, typical mountain rivers, of the Bystrytsia river take their sourch in the Gorgany Mountains of the Carpathian mountain range in the Ukrainian province of Ivano-Frankivsk. With the city of Ivano-Frankivsk, the administrative center of the Ivano-Frankivsk Oblst, the two branches merge, and then flow 17 km (11 mi) south of Halych near the town of Yezupil where the river finally flows into the Dniester.
The name, Bystrytsia, is translated as fast moving from the Slavic word, бистрий - bystry.
