Today it may be hard to believe, but Lukoml, Vitebsk region, is one of the oldest corners on the territory of modern Belarus. Once upon a time, a whole city stood here, and chronicle references go as far as the middle of the 11th century. However, history was harsh on these places, and numerous wars and battles endlessly passed through the once strong Lukom principality. A reminder of the former greatness of Lukoml is hillfort, not far from the center of the agro-town, which offers a gorgeous view of the river.

Here was a fortified Lukoml Castle, which was completely destroyed by the troops of Ivan the Terrible in 1563. From that period, the decline of the city begins, which eventually received the status of an ordinary village.
