    Kobryn is a city that lies about 5 km east of the city of Brest and about 1000km from Moscow. That’s why we choose it for staying for a night after the long driving in the direction of Belarus-Poland border in Brest. We spent a night in this city in August of 2000 on our way to Germany from Moscow in our second trip to Europe by car.We found a...

  • Monuments

    The spirit of communism still lives in Minsk. Though I'm an anti-communist I think it's good that they didn't ruin all the communist monuments, because if they did Mink wouldn't have the charm it has now. For me, it's a lovely and free place without any foreign banks, petrol-stations, billboards and multi-national companies...well, except...

  • Lenin Monuments

    Unlike in most of the ex-USSR states, the Lenin Monuments are still eradicated in Belarus in most of the towns. I could not take the photo of the one in Minsk Ploschad Nezavisimosty as it was just in fron of the House of the Government, and the militia guearding there did not allow me to do that.

Therefore, you will never be far from a forest.Ask a local where you can go to pick berries and most of all, which ones are SAFE! As soon as you enter a typical forest you will see...

    The heart of the country is its capital. But if you look for the soul, you should visit one of numerous small Belarusian villages. Perhaps, wooden painted cottages, bumpy roads, people driving a horse cart, gees stepping in a chain one by one to a pond nearby, or a shepherd turning its herd of cows back home after a long day grazing won't be a...

    In inviting you to visit this seemingly unremarkable corner of Belarus with its quiet river Ptich'(which once was one of the waterways called 'from the Vikings to the Greeks') and its inviting name, like a tune of a faraway fife, 'Du-du-t-ki'...,we would like to give you pleasure of acquaintance with the history and culture of this land, its...
