Bobruisk is a city in Belarus. The place had been inhabited by people since the fifth-sixth centuries. The city was first mentioned in 1387 as part of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. In 1792 it became part of the Russian Empire and was included into the borders of Belarus in 1795. Today it is actually the largest city in the country. The photos made in the Soviet epoch show what the life in the city at those times was like.
