Smorgon is known from the 15th century. The town was owned by the Radziwill and the Pshezdetskie Princes. Napoleon stayed here during the war of 1812. During the First World War since September 1915 till February 1918 the front line passed through Smorgon. In the aftermath of the positional battles that lasted more than 800 days, the city, in fact, ceased to exist. In memory ot those battles a memorial complex along the standoff line was opened in Smorgon. Today Smorgon is a city where antiquity and modernity are beautifully combined.

Smorgon district is rich in and famous for its people and places of interest. Mieczystaw Kartowicz, a famous symphonist and the pride of Slavic and world music, was born in the village Vishnevo in 1876. Democratic poet Franciszek Bohuszewicz spent his childhood and youth in Kushlyany, today tourists can visit his museum-estate. World-famous composer Michal Kleotas Oginski lived in the village Zatesie. Historians claim that it was here that he wrote his famous polonaise “Farewell to the Homeland”. In 2014 the estate of Oginski was opened, followed by the opening in 2015 of a permanent exhibition of the State historical and cultural institution “Museum-Estate of MX Oginski”.

The main tourist centers of the district are Krevo, Zhodishki and Sola. In the village Krevo there is a castle-fortress built in the early 14th century by Prince Gediminas.
