It is indicated that the available literature on the activities of the Svyatopolk-Mirskyi family is very brief and of a reference nature, and the most important studies on the indicated issues belong to the researcher of local history from the town of Lyubotyn, Kharkiv region, V.V. Strilez, the value of which lies in the author’s use of a significant number of archival sources.The issue of the need to restore and restore the Svyatopolk-Mirsky palace and park complex in Lubotyn after the end of the Russian aggression and after the liberation of our temporarily occupied territories was raised, taking into account the cultural and historical value of the buildings and the services of this famous family to the city. It is noted that from 1881 to 1917, representatives of the Svyatopolk-Mirskyi family lived in Lubotin from time to time: some representatives of the ancient princely family were born, some - found their last peace. Attention is focused on the fact that in thirty-six years, in this short time, from the point of view of history, a palace complex with a beautiful park design, measuring 26 hectares, was completed and partially rebuilt; The St. Nicholas Orthodox Church also underwent a grandiose reconstruction and capital extension, mainly at the expense of representatives of this noble family, a gymnasium was built and maintained, where the children of ordinary Lyubotyns studied and the teachers livedDuring the study of the mentioned problem, it turned out that only the palace building itself and the rotunda, which were actively used by the Soviet authorities, are in need of restoration, because compared to other palaces of that era, this monument of garden and park art was part of the natural landscapes of the unique beauty of the Slobojan nature.
