Spinning pedals to history
Cycling through Slavgorod District to see cultural and historical heritage and significant monuments
The new bicycle route takes in the border stone, a ducal sign from Kievan Rus times and a unique burial site of over 250 graves, as well as the Blue Spring shrine — thought to have miraculously healing powers. The city of Slavgorod is no less interesting.
Mogilev State University’s Department of Archaeology and Special Historical Disciplines’ cycle route visits various dig sites, each bearing protective signs and historical information. The pilot project for archaeological tourism will end with an invitation to a field seminar, and is likely to attract not only professional interest but those with a love of history.
