We start from the south of Sumy district. The town of Trostianets on the Boromlia River was first mentioned in the written sources of 1660.Till 1704 this land belonged to Colonel I. Perekhrestov, and later passed to the Nadarzhynskies family. At the close of the 18 th century it became the property of the Golitsyns family. In 1881 it passed to the “sugar king” L. Kenig. Thanks to the grandee owners, a park, pond, and palace appeared in the settlement. Something has survived to our time. The remains of the park that stretch to the terrain of “Neskuchne” even today serve as a cool shelter on hot days in summer. Close to the park there has survived the manor house where P.Chaikovksy stayed in summer 1864.
Here he created his first symphonic work – an overture to A.Ostrovsky’s drama “The Storm.” A.Chekhov, P. Hrabovsky, I. Sokolov and other famous writers sojourned in Trostianets as well. Recently restoration of the “Round Yard,” a unique structure in the territory of Ukraine, has been in part completed. In 1749 this architectural complex emerged in the center of the settlement. Later its owners turned it into a toy fortress, using it as a riding school, circus ring, or a theater stage. At the exit from the city in the direction of Okhtyrka you will see the Intercession Church (1903-1913) with a 40-meter high bell-tower.
