Trostianets

Trostianets, Ichnia Region, is a village (1,000 residents) on the right bank of the rivulet of the same name flowing into the River Lysohir. For the first time the chronicle mentions the hamlet in 1549 as the property of the Hermitage of St. Nicholas. In 1629, Poles plundered it. Later Kozak I. Khorunzhiy restored it. He sold Trostianets to the descendants of Hetman Skoropadski. In 1830 one of them, I. Skoropadski, married Ye. Tarnovska and got the hamlet and adjoining lands as a dowry. In 1830, he erected farmstead buildings, and a year later mortgaged the park. During first 30 years, the park project included building of four ponds and creation of park plantations, park amelioration and territorial expansion at the expense of neighboring plots. The next stage of park development began at the end of the 50s of the 19th c. Returning from wandering Europe, where I. Skoropadski visited the landscape park of D.Rothschild in France, he decided to create something like it at home. His serfs threw up artificial hills and dug canyons. Such titanic earthwork lasted until the owner's demise in 1887. Growing of rare types of trees from different nurseries never stopped. The work on creation of artistic landscapes was completed in 1886. The 204 ha Trostianets dendrologi-cal park with its over 400 kinds and forms of trees and bushes was considered one of the richest in the FSU.
