The author critically reviewed most popular hypotheses about the localization of the place of death of Prince Svyatoslav Igorevich in the context of written and archaeological sources. Special attention is paid to hypotheses of the origin of swords found in 1928 in the pit of the DnieproHES dam, a sword found near Khortitsa island in 2011 and also to the Voznesenka archaeological complex unearthed in 1930, interpreted as “Svyatoslav’s grave” by M. A. Miller. The author states impossibility to establish the actual place of death of the prince and his warriors on the basis of available scientific data.
