History of Navahrudak
Navahradak (Navahrudak, Нава́градак in Belarusian; Polish: Nowogródek; Russian: Novogrudok, Lithuanian: Naugardukas) is a city in western Belarus.
History of Navahrudak
It came under the control of the Kyivan Rus at end of the 10th century. In the 13th century, the fragile unity of Rus' disintegrated due to nomadic incursions from Asia, which reached a climax with the Mongol Horde's sacking of Kyiv (1240), leaving a geopolitical vacuum in the region. The Early East Slavs splintered along preexisting tribal lines into a number of independent and competing principalities. Due to military alliances, dynastic marriages and previous assimilation, the Belarusian principalities gravitated toward the expanding Lithuanians and became part of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania.
According to the Stryjkowski Chronicle (1582) the city was the first capital of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania.Navahradak become part of Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth following the Union of Lublin in 1569 and later become part of imperial Russia due to the partitions of Poland in 1795.

Orsha is a historic city in Belarus in Vitsyebsk voblast on the fork of the Dnieper and Arshytsa rivers with a population of 116,000. Orsha was first mentioned in 1067 as 'Rsha' making it one of the oldest towns in Belarus. The town was named after the river which was originally also named Rsha.
In 1320, Orsha became a part of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and in 1398-1407, the Orsha castle was built. On September 8, 1514 the famous Battle of Orsha occurred, between allied Grand Duchy of Lithuania with Kingdom of Poland and the Russian army. The Russian army suffered a significant defeat; however victorious Grand Duchy of Lithuania did not fully avail its victory. Orsha was granted Magdeburg Rights in 1620. In 1630, S. Sobal opened the first printing house at the Kuciejna monastery, which became a well-known centre of Cyrillic-alphabet publishing.
In 1812, the city was badly burned during Napoleon's invasion. During the First World War and Second World War the city was occupied by German forces.
