One of the oldest settlements in the Kherson Oblast. In the late 14th century it was part of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. Grand Duke Vytautas built a castle here. It served as a Lithuanian customs point, as lower Dnieper formed the Lithuanian border. Later on it was known as the Turkish fortress of Kyzykermen. Since the 1784 re-establishment of the settlement it is named Beryslav.
