Losk is an interesting village in which a rather atypical terrain for Belarus prevails, which at one time contributed to the construction here Lossky Castle. Presumably, a wooden fortress was erected on a local settlement in the first half of the 14th century. It is known about the castle in Losk: the total area of ​​the castle was approximately 75 by 160 meters, surrounded by a wooden fence with 10 towers and two entrance gates. In the center of the settlement there were various buildings, as well as a two-story palace (there is an assumption that there were 2 palaces).

The settlement in Loska is a monument of archeology in Belarus; excavations have been carried out here several times, the last one in the 90s.
