Tales of old Mensk (the old name of our city) will be interesting for many.

CASTLES

 

Do you want to know more about the history of Belarus? Then, you will definitely like my tours to Nesvizh and Mir castles. Nesvizh and Mir castles stories are closely interwined with the history of the country, partly because of the castles owners, Radzvill family. Both castles are included into the UNESCO world heritage list. We, normally, plan up to 8 hours for this tour.

Grodno, Lida, Ruzhany and Lyubcha castles are also among the best remaining and preserved historical and architectural monuments. Tours to, so called, Castle belt of Belarus, which consist of many picturesque ruins of castles and fortresses are also fascinating. The belt surrounded by ancient villages, many of which were Medieval  towns some time ago…

 

7-8 hours and 180$.

 

WAR ROUTES

 

Belarus was the battlefield of almost all the wars and conflicts in the Eastern Europe. If you are keen about the military history, you will love the WW2 tours starting from the first days of war at the Stalin line, through tragedies of Khatyn and Trostenets death camp up to the days of liberation and “Minsk pocket” at the Mount of Glory. Battle fields of the WW1, which lasted here for 4 years and other bloody conflicts on the territory of this land, including Napoleon invasion in 1812, Russian-Swedish war and numerous Russian-Polish conflicts deserve attention as well.
