Legend "Shklov"

According to legend, in the place where modern Shklov is located, a rich merchant accidentally scattered precious stones on the river bank, which in the rays of the sun sparkled like glass or «shklo» in Belarusian. Because of this incident, the river began to be called Shklovyanka, and the city accordingly Shklov.
