Tour Details

Let’s start the journey with a visit to the main city of Belarus – Minsk, located on the Svislač and the Nyamiha rivers. Do you know that the city of Minsk is even older than Moscow? Together we will explore its old historic city center, the most precious monuments and the ethnographic Museum complex “Dudutki”, devoted to ancient crafts and technologies. Get ready for the unforgettable authentic experience! You’ll immerse yourself in the atmosphere of one of the oldest cities of Belarus – Grodno. The magnificent castles of Mir and Nesvizh will fascinate you with their authentic medieval beauty. You will even visit the famous Brest Fortress – as if you have a chance to travel through the history book…

The Brest Fortress, also known as the Brest-Litovsk Fortress, dates back to the 19th century. Its construction was completed in 1842. Today, the citadel is not only a symbol of the Soviet resistance during the Second World War, but also the most important tourist attraction in the city of Brest. You will have an opportunity to explore the fortress itself and visit the Museum of the Defense of Brest fortress.

You will certainly enjoy an excursion to the Bialowieza Forest, a UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage site located on the border between Belarus and Poland. The forest is a home for some rare indigenous species such as European bison, wild boar, “konik” (a semi-wild horse), and Eurasian elk. You’ll also visit the city of Barysaw located near the famous Berezina River, and whose history is closely intertwined with the events of the Napoleonic invasion…
