Cities of Belarus: Mogilev

Mogilev – one of the oldest and most distinguished cities of Belarus.

Although from the IX century, there are already large human settlements here, the official history of the city begins in 1267, when there is a hill of the grave, in the confluence of Dnipro and Dubrovna, the construction of wooden fortress structures begins. By the middle of the 18th century, Mogilev acquires a powerful system of defensive structures with 12 towers surrounding the city by three belts with a total length of more than 7 km. The same period dates back to the city in a major craft-industrial center and a transport node with a river port. Numerous war, rushing through the territory of Belarus, repeatedly destroyed the city itself, but the fortress survived, and its few structures that have come down to this day are the main monuments of the old Mogilev.
