History of the development - Dyatlovo

The first mention of the city Dyatlovo dates back to 1498, when the place Zdescholo was donated to Hetman Konstantin of Ostrog by the Grand Duke of Lithuania Alexander. At the same time, he gave him the right to found a place here, which at that time was very profitable. Konstantin Ivanovich did a lot for this settlement, but eventually sold the land. Then Dyatlovo passed from one owners to another. At various times, the owners were representatives of the genera Sapieha, Polubinsky, Radziwills , Soltan. It was under Sapieha in 1646 that the town was built Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary , which has reached our days.

During the Northern War, Dyatlovo himself visited Peter I , since his leading forces settled here in the winter quarters. So, the Russian army waited for the cold season in 1707-1708. After the division of the Rzecz Pospolita between the three states, the town passed to the Russian Empire as part of Slonim district. Having survived the occupation during the First World War and the Soviet-Polish wars of the 20th century, this territory was subordinated to the Polish state until 1939.

The real tragedy for the residents of the Dyatlovsky district was the Great Patriotic War . For almost the entire period, the city and the nearest villages were under German occupation, during which more than 12,000 people died. Many villages, the Great Will, Towns, Dubrovka and others, suffered the fate of Khatyn. It is worth noting that a partisan detachment in which a hospital was located was actively operating near the city. Here everyone knows the hero Iosif Yuryevich Filidovich, who repeated the feat of Ivan Susanin, pointing the Germans to the road to the swamp. In the summer of 1944, the city was liberated during Operation Bagration.

Today Dyatlovo is a modern city of the Grodno region, which has a great tourist potential. The economy and cultural life, as well as sport are actively developing here - there is our own football team «Belaya Rus». In 2017, a new church was opened - the Cathedral in honor of the new martyrs and confessors of the Russian Church. Well developed infrastructure , historical monuments and good nature of the locals will surprise and delight all visitors to the city.
