In the vicinity of a number of settlements of lake Seliger has a long history. Some of today's villages in the area, for example, Upper Volga lakes once were fortified by Lithuanian towns.

Since the beginning of XIII and until the end of the XVII century in these places many times roll flat waves of the Lithuanian invasion. Only in the XIII century the similar invasions occurred in 1225-1227, 1245 and 1258. For their attachment to the Upper Volga, in the very first of these invasions Lithuanians built a few small towns, one of which was Goryshin.

These towns for a long time been the subject of controversy between Russian and Lithuanian princes. Ivan Kalita had burned them, but the Lithuanians again rebuilt, seeing them as an outpost for their campaigns to Moscow. The grandson of Ivan Kalita, Dmitry Donskoy, once again took part, destroyed part of the Lithuanian construction. However, they have long passed from hand to hand, until finally in 1503 became part of the Moscow State.
