Polotsk

Polotsk is one of the oldest Belarusian cities. It was first mentioned in the "Book of Time Years" of 862. Its most interesting sight is the Sophia of Polotzk, the main temple of the ancient Land of Polotzk built in 50s of XIth century by legendary Duke Vseslav Charodey (the Wizard). During the Northern War, the Russian troops led by Tsar Peter I stored munitions in the temple's basement. The storage blew up and nearly ruined the temple. In 1738-1750 the temple was reconstructed by architect Glaubitz into a baroque catholic church of the Vilensky style. Nowdays the building of the Sophia of Polotzk is used as a concert hall for old-time music performances.The Spas-Yevphrosinia Nunnery of the XII-XXth century is another important historical site of the city. The cloister was founded by the today's patroness of the city, Yevphrosinia of Polotzk. The Spas-Yevphrosinia Church keeps the saint's relics and the famous Cross of Yevphrosinia of Polotzk, originally made by ancient craftsman Bogsha and recreated later by contemporary designers.
