History of the development - Slobodka

In the V—VII centuries, the main population of the Braslav region belonged to the Baltic cultures, but even then a gradual penetration of the Slavic-Krivichy began. In the IX century, the Braslav Poozerye was part of the Principality of Polotsk, formed by the Kriviches. During the time of Prince Bryachislav Izyaslavovich (1003-1044), several fortified settlements were purposefully built. Thea are at the same time defensive points, centers of colonization, and trade and craft places. Slobodka erected as one of these foreign fortresses.
