HistoryEdit

The date of establishment of the town Lypova Dolyna is not known, but it was first mentioned sometime in 17th century as a village of Magnate Jeremi Wiśniowiecki in Kiev Voivodeship.[1] Its name Lypova Dolyna (Linden Valley) has derived from local river Lypivka.[1]

In 1647 the village contained 150 dwelling yards (households).[1] The population of the village actively participated in the Khmelnytsky Uprising after which it became part of Myrhorod Regiment (one of administrative divisions of Cossack Hetmanate).[1]

In 1658 Lypova Dolyna was raided by Tatars.[1] Later it was a private estate of various Cossack officers (starshina).[1] In 1764 the Russian Empress Catherine the Great gave away Lypova Dolyna to Kirill Razumovski who surrendered his Hetmanate authority the same year.[1] In 1785 the village was sold to the Russian Treasury.[3]

During World War II it was under German occupation.

Urban-type settlement since 1961.

In January 1989 the population was 5303 people.[4]

In January 2013 the population was 5324 people.[5]
