Localización: Capital de la Región de Grodno y del Distrito de Grodno
Descripción:Grodno es la única ciudad de Belarús donde se han conservado dos castillos reales, el Antiguo y el Nuevo, y conjuntos de diferentes estilos arquitectónicos — desde el barroco hasta el constructivismo. El Castillo Antiguo fue construido a finales del siglo XIV – principios del siglo XV por orden del Duque Vytautas. El espesor de las paredes del castillo alcanza 3 m, la longitud, unos 300 m. Durante la segunda mitad del siglo XVI el Castillo Antiguo se convirtió en la residencia del rey Stefan Batoria. Durante las batallas de la Guerra del Norte (1700-1721) el castillo fue dañado gravemente, y se decidió construir un nuevo castillo. En 1925 en el Castillo Antiguo fue inaugurado el Museo Histórico y Arqueológico. En las orillas del Neman, cerca del Castillo Antiguo está la Iglesia Borisoglébskaya (Kolózhskaya) del siglo XII, uno de los santuarios más antiguos de Belarús. El centro histórico de la ciudad es la Plaza Sovétskaya, que en algunas partes conservó la planificación eurooccidental de los siglos XV — XVII. Aquí se encuentra la Catedral de San Francisco Javier, uno de los monumentos más bellos del barroco en Belarús.

Grodno (en bielorruso, Гродна, Hrodna; en ruso, Гродно; en latín: Grodna, Grodnae; en lituano, Gardinas; en polaco, Grodno; en yidis, גראדנא) es una ciudad de Bielorrusia. Está situada cerca del río Neman, cerca de las fronteras con Polonia y Lituania (a unos 15 km y 30 km, respectivamente). La población es de 327 540 habitantes (estimación de 2009).4 Es la capital de la Región de Grodno y del Distrito de Grodno. Cabe destacar que es la ciudad natal del mafioso Meyer Lansky y del mito de la gimnasia artística Olga Kórbut.
La moderna ciudad de Grodno se originó como una pequeña fortaleza y un puesto comercial fortificado mantenido por los príncipes Rúrikovich en la frontera con las tierras de la unión tribal báltica de los yotvingios. Su nombre deriva del verbo gorodit en antiguo eslavo oriental, es decir, «encerrar», «cercar».
La primera referencia a Grodno data de 1005.5 Sin embargo, el año oficial de fundación es 1127. En este año Grodno fue mencionado en la Crónica de Néstor como Goroden' y situado en un cruce de numerosas rutas comerciales, este asentamiento eslavo, posiblemente de origen a finales del siglo X, se convirtió en la capital de un principado mal atestiguado pero separado, regido por el nieto de Yaroslav I el Sabio y sus descendientes.
Junto con Navahrudak, Grodno fue considerada como la principal ciudad en el extremo oeste de la llamada Rutenia negra, una región fronteriza con la Lituania original. Fue atacada con frecuencia por varios invasores, especialmente los Caballeros Teutónicos. En las décadas de 1240-1250 la zona de Grodno, así como la mayor parte de la Rutenia negra, fue controlada por príncipes de origen lituano (Mindaugas y otros) para formar el estado Báltico —el Gran Ducado de Lituania— en estos territorios. Después de los levantamientos de Prusia una gran población de viejos prusianos se trasladó a la región. El famoso lituano Gran Duque Vitautas fue príncipe de Grodno en 1376-1392, y se quedó allí durante sus preparativos para la Batalla de Grunwald (1410). Desde 1413, Grodno había sido el centro administrativo de un powiat en el Voivodato de Trakai.
