On the way to the agricultural town of Svisloch, Grodno region, there is a small village Branowo where preserved wooden house. This is an unusual building, according to old maps, it is located on the site of an old farmstead Brakovo. There is no exact data to whom and for how long these lands belonged, but there are several assumptions.
In some sources, the name of the Gorzokovskys (Gazhkovskys) is found, who owned the farm until 1939. According to this version, the manor was built in 1920 in the Zakopane style of architecture. If you look closely at the building, you can clearly see the common features with the wooden Polish communes, which were actively built on the territory Belarus during the period of interwar Poland.
There is also an assumption that the estate in Brakovo was built in the same period as Krasinsky-Puslovsky estate in Svisloch. At the end of the 19th century, the enterprising Marta Puslovskaya actively invested in the development of this region - perhaps this building is also on her account.
Today, the wooden house is completely abandoned, although just a couple of years ago, workers from the local poultry farm still lived here.
According to the memories of Branowo residents, a real landscape park was laid out around the manor.
At the main entrance stands out a stone staircase with sides.
The former manor has no historical or protected status. The building is located near the SPK Svisloch enterprise, so driving here is prohibited. It is better to leave the transport near the parking lot and walk, below is the point marked on the map:
