Slutsk

 

Slutsk is located in the Minsk region. Slutsk is an ancient city with a rich history. For the first time Slutsk (chronicle Sluchesk) is mentioned in 1116 in the "Tale of Bygone Years" as one of the cities of the Turov land. Slutsk was the third Belarusian city (after Brest and Grodno), which received the Magdeburg Law (1441). Since 1617, the oldest Calvinist gymnasium in Belarus operated in the city. Slutsk is also known for the female rulers Anastasia and Sofia Slutsk, as well as the factory for the production of Slutsk belts. Unfortunately, a huge amount of architectural heritage has not survived to this day.
