Zaslavl is situated in the Minsk region. It was founded at the end of the tenth century by Prince Vladimir Svyatoslavovich of Kiev. According to the legend, Prince Vladimir sent his former wife Rogneda to live here with their son Izyaslav. Probably, the town’s current name derives from Izyaslav’s name.

From 1678 the city was in possession of the family of Sapegovs, from 1753 it belonged to Anthony Pshezdetski. In the XVI century there was a printing house in Zaslavl, where Symon Budny, the famous Belarusian enlightener, printed the Bible in 1574.

At the end of the XVIII century there was a school at the Catholic church and a Jewish school for gentry’s children at the monastery. The monastery had a library of 442 volumes.

Today Zaslavl is a city of regional subordination. The city is located in one of the most picturesque places on the river Svisloch 27 km north-west of Minsk.

The remarkable architecture monuments that survived to the present day are the history and culture reserve "Zaslavl", which consists of the Spaso-Preobrazhenskaya Church (10th century) and Virgin Mary Nativity Cathedral (18th century), the settlement “Zamechek” (10-11 centuries), burial mounds of the 10 - 11 centuries, the settlement "Val" with a former Calvinist collection (11-17 century).
