former village Vishnevets, and today the agro-town is interesting for its main attraction - Church of St. John the Baptist. The temple was founded back in 1742, when the territory of the town of Vyshnevets was part of the village of Govezno. The construction was carried out through the efforts of the Benedictine Order, to which Nikolai Radziwill donated these lands back in the 16th century.
