Golshany - This is a fairly large agricultural town in the Oshmyany district. This place is well known in Belarus and is popular with tourists. Why? The reason is quite simple, here is partially preserved Sapieha Palacewhich is slowly being restored. However, apart from the ruins of the castle there is something to see in Golshany. For instance ordinary building from old houses in the center.

What to see in Golshany

Most of these houses belong to the end 19, early 20th century. Made of brick, one-story with an attic or attic, less often two-story. Most of them were built by the Jewish population of Golshan, who were engaged in handicrafts and trade. If you look closely, you can see the blocked entrances. For trade, access to the main street was convenient, but not quite for housing. Therefore, the current owners have changed the layout.
