Trostianets (also Trostyanets; Ukrainian: Тростянець) is a city in Sumy Oblast, Ukraine. It serves as the administrative district of Trostianets Raion. Trostianets is located on the Boromlya River, 59 km (37 mi) from Sumy. Population: 20,708 (2015 est.)[1]

Local sights include a neo-Gothic "round courtyard" (1749), the late Baroque church of the Annunciation (1744–50), the 18th-century Galitzine palace, and a "grotto of nymphs" (an 1809 centenary memorial to the Battle of Poltava).

In March 1930 the village was the centre of a quickly defeated anti-Soviet Union revolt.[2]
