Dykanka was first mentioned in 1658 as a small village, though the area was populated for centuries.
In 1430 the land got Tatar Murza Leksada Mansurksanovych, the future Prince Alexander Glinski, and, according to Leo Padalka and other pre-revolutionary (before 1917) historians Dykanka was among his ″settlements″.
It has held the status of urban-type settlement since 1957.
