Luka lies in a bend in the river Dniester on its left bank and on the regional road P-20 . The district center Horodenka is 25 km southeast and the Oblast center Ivano-Frankivsk is about 50 km northwest of the village.
The village is the administrative center of the district council of the same name in Horodenka district , which also includes the villages of Monastyrok ( Монастирок , ) with about 100 inhabitants and Unisch ( Уніж , ) with about 150 inhabitants.
The place was mentioned in writing for the first time in 1465, initially in the Halitscher Land in the Ruthenian Voivodeship in the Kingdom of Poland (until 1569 in the aristocratic republic of Poland-Lithuania ).

After the end of the First World War , the village first came to the West Ukrainian People's Republic and after the Polish-Ukrainian War to Poland , where it was from 1921 in the Stanisławów , Powiat Horodenka , Gmina Nieźwiska Voivodeship . In September 1939 the village was occupied first by the Soviet Union and from summer 1941 to summer 1944 by the Wehrmacht and incorporated into the Galicia district.
After Luka was retaken by the Red Army at the end of the Second World War , it became part of the Ukrainian SSR within the Soviet Union and since its break-up in 1991 it has been part of the independent Ukraine.
