Small provincial town founded on a high hill of the river Esman' around a thousand years ago. In the beginning of the 18th century it became the Hetman's capital of the Left-bank Ukraine. There is an old Spaso-Preobrazhens'ka Church (Church of the Savior's Transfiguration) in Ukrainian baroque style. The music of the famous composers Bortnians'kyi, Vedel, Berezovs'kyi who were pupils of Glukhiv music school reached our days. In the second part of the 19th century the economy of Glukhiv sky-rocketed. Pedagogical Institute and Anastasyiivs'ka Church (St. Anastasia's Church) were built by charity of sugar plant owner Mykola Tereshchenko and his wife.
