History of the development - Rubezhevichi
Rubezhevich appeared in the XIII - XIV centuries. This rather large place once belonged to the Slutsk principality.
It is known that in the middle of the XVI century the Lithuanian border from near Brest passed through Minsk, Novogrudok, up to the Dvina and Pskov possessions.
In the XVI century it was the residence of the Radziwills, under whose management Rubezhevichi became a trade and craft center, with a population of about 2 thousand people and regular fairs.
In spite of their ancient origins, Rubezhevichs, however, did not turn into a city.
After the conclusion of the Riga Peace Treaty of 1921, the border dividing Poland from the Soviet Union stretched near Rubezhevichi.
During World War II, the village was occupied from June 1941 to July 1944.
