The name of this village before 1787 was Hulajpol. During the partitions of Poland many residents of town resettled near the Sea of Azov establishing another town of Huliaipole. In 1923–1959 Zlatopil was an administrative center of Zlatopil Raion. Since 1959 it is part of Novomyrhorod city.
Before the Holocaust, Zlatopil was a prosperous Jewish Shtetl. There was also a gymnasium (school) for rich people in Zlatopil. Some Jews of Zlatopil served in the Russian army during World War I and suffered under the pogroms of 1918–1920. Those who remained in Zlatopil were killed in August 1941. After World War II the Jews who survived in the Red Army returned to Zlatopil and buried the Jews of Zlatopil in a common grave in the old Jewish cemetery of Zlatopil. Today there are almost no Jews in Zlatopil.
