At the entrance to Volozhin, just outside the village of Kapustino, there is 19th century chapel. Now it is Orthodox Transfiguration Church at the local cemetery, however, the building was originally built by order of Count Tyszkiewicz as a chapel for Church of Saint Joseph.

Chapel in Volozhin

In 1885, the chapel was transferred to the Orthodox Church, after which the building was slightly rebuilt. In Soviet times, the building was not used and it gradually fell into disrepair.

Volozhin chapel renovated in 2014. Another tier in the pseudo-Russian style of architecture was added to the belfry.

Near this place you can see Church in the village of Pershai, and also stop by Nalibokskaya Pushcha and see tarpan horses.
