Stepan (Ukrainian: Степань; Polish: Stepań; Hebrew: סטפאן‎) is an urban-type settlement in Sarny Raion (district) of Rivne Oblast (province) in western Ukraine. Its population was 4,073 as of the 2001 Ukrainian Census.[2] Current population: 4,201 (2017 est.)[3]

The settlement is located in the historic Volhynia region of Ukraine, on the left bank of the Horyn, a tributary of the Prypiat.[4]


The first written mention of Stepan dates back to 1290.[2] In 1900, the Jewish population of Stepan totaled 1,854.[5] During the World War II occupation of Ukraine, the Nazi German occupying forces established a Jewish ghetto, where nearly 3000 Jews were killed.[4] In 1960, Stepan acquired the status of an urban-type settlement.[2]
