A little about the sights of Belarus
Sights of Belarus is a storehouse of architectural and cultural monuments that keep the spirit of many centuries and cultural heritage. Yes, Blue-eyed cannot boast of an abundance of iconic historical sites like many European countries, but at the same time, we also have something to see!
Not everything was destroyed, burned and destroyed during the periods of numerous wars that took place on our territory. Many sights of Belarus managed to be preserved, brought into divine form and restored to their former grandeur.
More historical places are waiting for their reconstruction. And even those historical sites that for some reason did not make it to the list of places for restoration deserve special attention.
They keep the spirit of the era in which they were built, they have their own unique atmosphere, and the elements of abandonment, neglect and decay serve as a kind of contrast with the former greatness.
So feel free to choose interesting excursions in Belarus and get to know the country with the right guides.
Belarus will be of interest to everyone who is interested in history and church architecture, churches, estate complexes, fortresses, castles and others. The main sights belong to the period of the 17th-20th centuries, however, a number of buildings and structures of the high and late Middle Ages have also been preserved.
In addition, the architecture is presented in different styles: baroque и classicism, Gothic and Neo-Gothic, Art Nouveau and Rococo, Empire and Stalinist Empire, eclecticism and Renaissance.
The peculiarity of the sights of our country is that many historical monuments cannot be attributed to one specific style, their mixture prevails, for example, elements of baroque, classicism and empire can be present in one building. This largely makes our architecture unique.
Museums of various themes and directions will help you learn as much as possible about the sights, history, culture and life of Belarusians. The main thing here is to determine what you are most interested in.
Often local history museums, which try to cover a wide range of topics and trends, are located in each district city. In addition, there are narrowly focused museums dedicated to a specific day.sights of Belarus, production or historical place.
