Myrhorod Raion (Ukrainian: Миргородський район; translit.: Myrhorods'kyi raion) is a raion (district) in Poltava Oblast of central Ukraine. The raion's administrative center is the city of Myrhorod, which is incorporated separately as a city of oblast significance and does not belong to the raion. Population: 32,011 (2015 est.)[1]

Important rivers within the Myrhorodskyi Raion include the Psel and the Khorol. The raion was established on July 3, 1923, by splitting off Lubny Raion. The raion's current boundaries were established on January 8, 1966.
