  • Quite an interesting museum, covering the entire history of Polotsk. For an additional fee you will be guided by a researcher. As it turned out, Polatsk was founded not in the place where it is possible to assume. It begs the place of the fall of Polota in the Western Dvina, where the temple of St. Sophia, but it turned out that the very first settlement was in a different place. In the museum quite a lot of layouts and maps, thanks to one of them then and calculated that settlement, now built mostly private houses. There is a time in Polotsk-worth a visit.

  • Have been recently. Wanted to see valuable exhibits, which reveal the history of the region. And they are there! But the lack of ventilation and permanent presence of traces of the USSR, when the exposition was made, imposed the idea that history here just froze about 50 years ago. Who passed e-all here!
