In the village Drysvyaty you can see one of the most beautiful wooden churches Belarus. Church of Saints Peter and Paul began to build on the site of its predecessor in 1921. The work continued for quite some time, until 1929 years, after which the church was solemnly consecrated.

The church was designed Leon Witan-Dubeykovsky in the architecture of folk wooden architecture and features of modern style. The dominant place in the building is occupied by a high five-tiered tower, which is clearly visible even at the entrance to Drysvyaty. Please note that each subsequent tier of the tower is completely different from the previous one.
