In the very center Svisloch rises a white obelisk, the history of which, like the city as a whole, is closely connected with the activities Vincent Tyszkiewicz. The famous count and figure of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania owned a number of estates on the territory of Belarus. He owned a luxurious Palace in Logoisk, manor Duboe, and of course Svisloch itself, where there was a hunting residence, from which, unfortunately, only the foundation has been preserved.
Vincent Tyshkevich actively invested in the development of Svisloch under him, the city really flourished and probably reached its economic peak. The count erected an obelisk in honor of an important city event - Svisloch Fair which attracted a large number of people.
The obelisk that can be seen today is a copy erected in 2017. The original stele was destroyed in 1939, it is believed that a mysterious time capsule with a message was also discovered then, laid almost by Count Tyszkiewicz himself. The entry read: “Gorad budze kvіtnets, pakul staіts gety slup”.
A rather atypical monument was restored with the help of local businesses, city residents and enthusiasts. As a result, Svisloch added another unique object to its list of attractions.
The monument is located in the very center of the city, near historical buildings, below is the point with the location on the map:
Another important historical object of Svisloch, associated with the name of the Tyshkeviches, is the building of the gymnasium. If you're in the area, I recommend taking a look. old church in Gniezno.
