V – VIII A.D.
this land was inhabited by Baltic tribes
Palitskoe hill fort, an archeological finding, is located close to the resort’s camping ground. Diggings of the late XX century exposed Dregovichi, the tribe from the early chronicles, living there. The place was also visited by Vikings, tireless travelers and explorers.
The exact date of people settling up on these shores is lost in time. Yet from the very first glance it becomes clear: our ancestors did not come here just by chance – they did feel the “right energy” coming from this place. The legendary Dregovichi tribe lived here: historians keep calling them the ancestors of modern Slavic people… Today all is left from Dregovichi engineering is a barely noticeable hill fort, that, to add to the drama, is slowly sinking. Even the name of the hill fort is lost in centuries. But the river’s name, Berezina, carries on! Just imagine: traders of their way “from Vikings to Greeks” were stopping by – right here, a thousand years ago! Vikings themselves, those tireless travelers and explorers, were also frequent visitors to this place. This land still carries the names of villages, water basins and other locations that root both in Slavic and Nordic.
Palitskoe hill fort, an archeological finding, is located close to the resort’s camping ground. Diggings of the late XX century exposed Dregovichi, the tribe from the early chronicles, living there. The place was also visited by Vikings, tireless travelers and explorers. It is a proven fact that Dregovichi were carefully choosing “the spots of force” – which you can still feel today. There are many boulders in the resort’s vicinities: in earlier times those boulders were used as border (land division) marks. Only 5 kilometres from the resort there is an old Jewish cemetery, surrounded by relict oak woods and aged linden alleys. .
The largest archeological object of Osipovichi district – the castle ground of Svisloch – is located close to the resort. During its long history the former castle used to be the residence of Svisloch Town Prince, the local governing point of the Great Duchy of Lithuania and the possession of Radzivill noble family. Up to this day many old coins, mostly from Napoleon era, are unintentionally found here. Today picturesque castle ruins, from where opens the amazing view of Berezina and Svisloch rivers merge, recall the glorious past.
