Among attractions of the ancient city of Orsha one will find Kuteynski Monastery, also termed as Kuteynskaya Lavra. One of the most notable initiatives of the monastery’s staff was the production of a printing press and its subsequent printing of Orthodox Church materials. This institution became particularly well-known following its printing of Spiridon Sobol’s “Bukvar” (reading primer), which in world catalogues is noted not only as an educational publication, but also as an innovative methodology in a teaching people to read. The first primer came from the region of Orsha.
