One of the oldest cities on the territory of Belarus - Tours. People often come here to look at the unique stone crosses and the ancient settlement with a museum, visit the reserve and enjoy nature. There is also a classic Polissya attraction in Turov - blue wooden church. All Saints Church was built in the first half of the 19th century in the architecture of traditional wooden architecture.

In the post-war years, the Church of All Saints was closed, and the building was used as a warehouse. The temple was returned to believers in 1980 - this was timed to coincide with the landmark anniversary of the city (*1000 years since the founding of Turov).

The temple is also visited to see unique artifacts - 2 stone crosses, which are rumored to have miraculous properties. There is even a legend that the crosses were taken from the Pripyat River, along which they sailed from Kyiv itself.
