According to a 1998 law of the Republic of Belarus,[1] there are three categories of urban-type settlements in Belarus:

  • Urban settlements (Belarusian гарадскія пасёлкі): with population over 2,000, industrial enterprises and developed residential infrastructure
  • Resort settlements (Belarusian курортныя пасёлкі, resort towns): with population of at least 2,000, sanatoriums, resorts or other health recuperation establishments, and developed residential infrastructure
  • Worker settlements (Belarusian рабочыя пасёлкі): with population at least 500, servicing industrial enterprises, construction sites, railroad stations, electric stations, or other industrial objects.

The notion of urban-type settlement is inherited from the times of Belarusian SSR within the Soviet Union.

Before the Soviet times, many modern urban settlements in Belarus were classified as miastechka/miasteczko ("market town").
