In the 6th century, Slavic tribes invaded Central Europe in the course of migration. The Siusili tribe settled in around the the town of Dibin, today known as Bad Düben. The extensive pastures provided good conditions for cattle breeding. The Slavic settlers developed special skills in beekeeping. The honey was gladly fermented to mead. The Siusili religion was a natural cult. Their gods Belbog and Perun were the creators of heaven and earth. The goddess of love was called Siewa. In addition to the deities, there were all kinds of house spirits, elves and goblins. According to the Siuslili, they were good-natured and beneficial to people. The victim festivals were celebrated with singing, dancing, feasting and drinking. Cold and hot baths were known and popular even then. The Siusili have taken these regularly for personal hygiene. They prepared steam baths by sealing a hut tightly with moss and then pouring water onto red-hot stones. Enriched with healing herbs that they collected in the heath, all sorts of ailments were cured.
