Mogilev is one of the most ancient cities of Belarus. It came into being in 1267 when a castle was laid on a high hill at the bend of the Dnieper at the confluence of the river Dubrovenka. During the following centuries a city developed around the castle. It is first mentioned in the 14th century in the "List of Russian cities distant and near."
Today Mogilev is a regional centre with developed infrastructure. Many houses and civil buildings of the late 18th-19th centuries have survived in the city. They preserve the colour of the historical past of the city on the Dnieper.
