Boryspil (Ukrainian: Бориспіль, translit. Boryspil’, Russian: Борисполь; also referred to as Borispol) is a city of regional significance located in the Kiev Oblast (province) in northern (central) Ukraine. Serving as the administrative center of the Boryspil Raion (district), the city itself is also designated as a separate raion (see city of regional significance) within the oblast.

The current estimated population is around 53,400 (as of 2004).

Although known as a settlement since at least 1154 and known under the modern name since 1590, it was not until 1956 that the place was received a city status. Currently the town is home to the country's main airport, Boryspil International Airport (international code KBP) and some minor industry.

During World War II, Boryspil was occupied by the German Army from September 23, 1941 to September 23, 1943. Fierce battles were fought around the city during its capture and liberation.

It also hosts Ukrainian Premier League team Arsenal Kyiv at the Kolos Stadium.
