Historically, the village took shape from the Moscow-Minsk highway. The northern part of the village (the one closest to the village of Kolesniki) was built up in the 90s. Opposite the village, through the Moscow-Minsk highway, is a half-grown field - a former village stadium. In the 70s there was a football goal with a net, volleyball courts and treadmills.
Previously, the village had a fairly large collective farm; grain and flax were regularly sown. There are still large facilities for the primary storage and transshipment of grain. Now everything is abandoned, the main population is summer residents. There were only a few indigenous people.
Not far from the village there is a spring whose name is associated with the name of Alexander Nevsky.
To the west of the village on the hill (to the left of the Moscow-Minsk highway, if you go from Moscow) you can still find the remains of the foundation of the old church. This is the so-called "Popovschina". The remains of the church were dismantled after the war to restore the national economy.
