    WWII memorial
    4 more images

    Bucienchy field - A lot of battles have been fought here; Swedish invasion, Napoleonic wars, and Germans. But this is mainly dedicated to the WWII effort when the Germans overtook Mogilev during Operation Barbarossa in the early stages of WWII. 82K Russians died defending the city, while the Germans lost 30K. The Russians finally took Mogilev back in 1944. A russian poet had his ashes laid here later in life because of the valor he witnessed during the fighting.

    Mogilev Museum

    Mogilev Museum

    Mogilev Museum – pretty interesting museum with a wide range of variety from caveman days up to WWII. I forgot the price, but it is very reasonable, pay the extra amount to take some photos. All types of history are touched here, plants, animals, pagan stones, etc… But the military history fascinated me the most, seeing the progression from 5th century solider all the way up to WWII. The captured Nazi Iron crosses was an impressive collection. I wish the Czar Nicholas collection could have been bigger.

    St. Stanislav Catholic Church

    St. Stanislav Church

    St. Stanislav – built in 1738, very huge church! Hard to get some decent photos because of two apartments’ proximity to the church. Tried for 4 days to get inside, but nobody would answer the phone or open the door. It is close to the Mogilev Theater building.

    Offical tourist info - Mogilev’s Church of St Stanislav annually hosts the festival of church music called Mahutny Bozha (mighty God) that attracts tourists from all parts of Belarus, Russia, Poland, Ukraine and many non-CIS states. The objective of the festival is to unite the Christian world. Initially the church building hosted a monastery of Carmelites (the order of poor monks that was established in Europe in the 13th century). The wooden building burned down. Later it was restored in stone by order of Russian Tsar Peter the Great.

    Inside and Orthodox church

    I hope this picture is clear enough to see all the details of this pretty Orthodox church. There were many pieces of art on the wall where people could light a candle by and pray, or leave flowers.
