Hlybokaye or Glubokoye is a town in Vitebsk Region, Belarus, the capital of Hlybokaye Raion . The city is located on the international road from Polotsk to Vilnius with the historic railway line to Woropajewo completed in 1932 in the interwar Poland . It has 18,200 inhabitants as of 2010.Within the city limits there are two smaller lakes: Kahalnaye and Grand from which the Birchwood river originates . The first written records about the settlement date back to 1514. During World War II in occupied Poland the town's district of Berezwecz was the location of a massacre of up to 2,000–3,000 Polish prisoners by the Soviet NKVD secret police. As late as 2009 the remains of more than 20 victims probably shot by NKVD after the takeover of the area from Poland were again discovered in a basement of a local church.
