  • Local cheap market

    Hrodna Shopping

    Skidelsky Market or "Bazaar" is an indoor and outdoor market which sells food, drinks, clothes, well, actually everything. In the indoor market hall you can find stalls with quality fresh meats, poultry and fish. If you are going to cook a nice roast dinner I would recommend you this place- the choice is great, you will also find home grown veg...

  • Beer and Chips, Belarussian style

    Hrodna Restaurants

    It is not a restaurant tip exactly. I just wanted to let you know that: first, you were used to be allowed to drink beer on the streets, but that changed over the recent year or two (see my pic #2), and second, it is very cheap and tastes pretty good (always make sure you buy Belarussian beer made in Lida, not Hrodno!).

    Lida castle was built at first half of 14th century by Duke Gediminas. No one believed that castle could be built on very sandy area, but it happened like that. Lida castle is the biggest structure of such type castles in Belarus (and probably all former Grand Lithuanian Duchy territory) - dimensions are about 80x80 meters. The castle was a part of defensive system of castles in medieval Lithuania. Other famous castles of the same system are in Novogrudok, Krevo, Trakai, Vilnius, Medininkai.

    Lida castle is only one castle of such type (rectangular castles), that is almost fully restored. Other rectangular type castles (they are oldest castles in this region) from Grand Lithuanian Duchy are still in ruins (Medininkai and Krevo as an examples).

    It is public opinion, that castle was rebuilt not professionally, using too much modern materials. Anyway, nowadays it is one of tourist spot in Belarus.
