Polotsk ancient Polotsk contemporary
All rights reserved
At the occasion of the 1,150th anniversary of the city of Polotsk mentioned in the "Primary Chronicle" (862).
Polotsk is one of the most ancient cities of Eastern Europe. It was first mentioned in a chronicle of 862 and was at that time the capital of the Principality of Polotsk, one of the first Slavic States. The Principality, a vassal State of Kievan Rus’, was a major trading nation which traded with the other Slavic States and Scandinavia. The city was then one of the largest in the region and was described in Scandinavian sagas as the most heavily fortified city in Kievan Rus’. The Principality corresponded closely to what is now Belarus, so that Polotsk was in a sense the first Belarusian capital.
