It is a significant railway junction and home to a state university. It was also the center of the Baranavichy Voblast between 1939-1941 and again between 1944-1954.In the second half of the XVII century the Jesuit mission housed in Baranavichy. In the second half of the XVIII century Baranovichi was the property of Mosalskih and Neveselovskih, in the XIX century belonged to the Countess E.A. Rozwadowski. The city's history began on 17 in November 1871, when began a movement at the newly built section of the railway Smolensk - Brest. Name of the station that arose during construction, gave the nearby village - Baranovichi, the first mention of which is found in the testament of A.E.Sinyavskaya in 1627. Then, in 1871, not far from the station has been built the locomotive depot. 1874 - the appearance of the railway junction. The wooden building of the station, station buildings, a few houses in which lived the railway - such were Baranovichi. The new railway will link Moscow with the western outskirts of the country. The impetus for more intensive settlement of the areas adjacent to the station from the south, was the event in May 1884 - Minsk provincial board has made a decision about building a town on the landlords' lands Rozwadowski, known Rozvadovo. Building of the town was carried out according to plan, approved by the Governor of Minsk May 27, 1884. In the village were 120 houses and lived a half thousand people. According to the plans, approved by Emperor Alexander III, was assumed that there will still be also one railway - Vilnius - Luninets - Pinsk - Rovno. Therefore, at the same time, two and a half kilometers from the station, the Moscow-Brest railway line crossed the track Vilnius-Rovno from Polesie railways. At the crossroads of the railway there is another station Baranovichi, which became the second center of the city. As in the first case, in the area of station settle workers and traders. There is a new settlement, which unlike Rozvadovo, which became informally named the Old Baranovichi, was named New Baranovichi. It was developed on the land owned by peasants of villages located near the new station . More convenient than the landlords' land, lease terms, proximity to administrative agencies contributed to the rapid growth of this settlement.
