History Edit

The location of Taromske has been known since 1190 as Tarentsky Rih.

It was settled by Zaporizhian Cossacks[1] at least since 1564. In 1704 Taromske became a town in Kodak Palanka of Zaporizhian Sich. It was located on the historic road from Kyiv to Khortytsia.[1]

In 1764 Taromske was granted a State military status[2] as denizens were exempt from serfdom but had to serve in the Russian military.

In 1885, the populated settlement of Taromske was a village. In 1938, it was given the status of an urban-type settlement. Since 1970, the settlement was included into the boundaries of city of Dnipropetrovsk (present day Dnipro[3]).[2]

From 1992 to 2001, the settlement was an autonomous settlement that was subordinate to the Dnipropetrovsk Municipality. In September 2001, its status of an urban-type settlement was liquidated[4] and it was absorbed into the city's Leninskyi District.[2] On 26 November 2015 Leninskyi District (named after Vladimir Lenin) was renamed to Novokodatskyi District to comply with decommunization laws.[5]
