Polatsk is a historical city in Belarus, situated on the Dvina river. It is the center of Polatsk district in Vitebsk voblast.The Old East Slavic name, Polotesk, is derived from the Polota river, that flows into Dvina nearby. The Vikings rendered that name as Palteskja, or Paltejsborg. Polatsk is one of the most ancient cities of the Eastern Slavs. It was mentioned for the first time by the Primary Chronicle in 862 (as polotesku), together with Murom and Beloozero. The Norse sagas describe the city as the most heavily fortified in all of Rus. Between the 10th and 12th centuries, the Principality of Polatsk emerged as the dominant center of power in what is now Belarusian territory, with a lesser role played by the principality of Turau( to the south. It repeatedly asserted its sovereignty in relation to other centers of Kievan Rus, becoming a political capital, the episcopal see and the controller of vassal territories among Balts in the west. Its most powerful ruler was prince Vseslav Bryachislavich (reigned from 1044 to 1101). A 12th-century inscription commissioned by Vseslav's son Boris may still be seen on a huge boulder installed near the St. Sophia Cathedral. For a full list of Polotsk rulers, please see List of Belarusian rulers. Polatsk became part of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania in 1307, and it is said to have been the main center of trade in the state. The Magdeburg law was adopted in 1498. Polatsk was a capital of Po?ock Voivodship of Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth until 1772. Captured by the Russian army of Ivan the Terrible in 1563, it was returned to Poland just 15 years later. That period of warfare started the gradual decline of the city. After the first partition of Poland Polatsk degraded to the status of a small provincial town of the Russian Empire. During the French invasion of Russia in 1812, it was the setting of two battles, First battle of Polotsk and Second battle of Polotsk.(WIKIPEDIA)
