Olia from Minsk sent this postcard which shows two famous Belarusian people - Ragneda and Izyaslav. According to chronicles, Zaslawye was founded in 985 by Vladimir the Great who sent his wife Rogneda  to live here with their son Izyaslav of Polotsk. The town's current name derives from Izyaslav's name.
