History of the development - Boruny

In 1613 Metropolitan Joseph Rutskoi contributed to the opening of a number of educational institutions, including an elementary school for monks and priests in Boruny. In 1778-1793 here was the construction of the stone monastery building, after which the school has become a 6-class.

As a result of the third partition of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in 1795, Boruny became part of the Russian Empire. After the suppression of the uprising of 1830-1831 Russian authorities abolished the school, and later transferred the Greek Catholic Church to an Orthodox parish.

According to the Riga Peace Treaty of 1921, Boruns became part of the interwar Polish Republic. In 1939, Boruns entered the BSSR. The status of the settlement was lowered to the village. In 1991 there were 168 courtyards.
