History[edit]

The area hitorically was a part of the Kingdom of Poland. Murovani Kurylivtsi is first mentioned in 1453. In 1793, after the Second Partition of Poland, it was transferred to the Russian Empire.[2] In Russia, it was a part of Ushitsky Uyezd of Podolia Governorate. On January 31, 1923 the uyezds were abolished.[3] The Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic was established, and Murovani Kurylivtsi became the administrative center of the newly established Murovani Kurylivtsi Raion, which was a part of Mohyliv-Podilskyi Okrug. In 1925, the governorate was abolished, and on February 27, 1932 Vinnytsia Oblast was established.[3] In 1962, the raion was abolished, and in 1966, it was re-established.[4] In 1991, the Soviet Union was abolished, and Murovani Kurylivtsi became a part of independent Ukraine.
