The town of Kozelets is situated on the river Oster. The date of its foundation is unknown, nevertheless it has been mentioned in chronicles since the 15th century. Kozelets is associated with the name of the last Ukrainian Hetman Kyrylo Rozumovs'ky and the whole Cossack Rozum's kin. It was an important trade centre. This family had built many wonderful temples. There is a pearl of Ukrainian baroque - Rizdva Bogoroditsi Cathedral (Cathedral of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin) left to posterity.
