Bryansk is an old town. The year of foundation is unknown. Presumably, people settled down here in the end of the 10th century. However nothing old survived Bryansk’s turbulent history. In the course of time the town was leveled to the ground many times. During the WWII it was badly destroyed and most of its population was exterminated.

The forested terrain around Bryansk was the scene of active guerilla warfare during the German occupation.
