The 1150th Anniversary of Smolensk

Smolensk – is one of the oldest towns of ancient Russia. It is older than Moscow and is the same age as Kiev and Novgorod. Smolensk, founded in 863 year, was up on the trade route from the Varangians to the Greeks, and history here reminds of itself every time by defensive wall or an ancient temple or a fortress tower. These buildings and monuments have witnessed the emergence and development of Smolensk and the whole Russia itself. Smolensk region gave the world such people as Gagarin, Glinka, Azimov, Tvardovsky, Przhevalsky and other personalities known far beyond the borders of our country.
