Population:HistoryThe name Belgorod in Russian literally means "white city", compounding the sememes "белый" and "город" . The city thus acquired its name because the region was rich in limestone. Etymologically, the name corresponds to other Slavic city-names of identical meaning: Belgrade, Belogradchik, Białogard, Biograd, Bilhorod, Bilhorod-Dnistrovskyi etc.Records first mention the settlement in 1237, when the Mongol-led army of Batu Khan ravaged it.

In 1666 the Moscow Patriarchate established an archiepiscopal see in the town.
