Summary/Abstract: In the Middle Ages and the Early Modern era, there was a number of recognisable sites of remem-brance in Polotsk. Th e cult of princes and saints originated in the period of Old Rus’, while in times of the Great Duchy of Lithuania the sites were not only complemented with new analogues, but also with the municipal and land symbols, including the land’s name - White Rus’, and others. From the turn of the sixteenth century, the Polotsk memorial places were increasingly influenced by the West European culture.
