Where is the waterfall located in Belarus?

The picturesque waterfall on the Vyata River has an interesting history. At the beginning of the last century, a paper mill was built nearby. At first, a mill was attached to it, but there was not enough energy for its operation, and a hydroelectric power station was built on the river bank. It provided energy not only for the plant, but for the entire region. In order for the hydroelectric power station to work more efficiently, a two-meter stone wall was erected in the channel of the Vyata. This is how the waterfall appeared, where today many tourists strive to get. But the power plant has not been working for a long time.

- The waterfall on Vyatya is located not far from Poviat, but sometimes tourists have to wander, so on the mural I depicted not only the waterfall itself, but also a map with entrances to it- said Yevgeny Sosyura. - It worked great: the weather helped, and the people who spoke positively about my work.

- All these murals are very different, but in one way or another they are connected with the place where they are painted., says the development specialist Tourism Sergei Rezov. - Disna has a portrait of Yazep Drazdovich, who went to the local gymnasium, in Miory, since it is a regional center - all the main sights of the region are depicted. As for Poviatya, then, of course, the main tourist location of this area is a waterfall on the Vyata River! The mural turned out to be very picturesque. Now tourists can find out several options for the route to the waterfall and choose any of them to admire the sight and take pictures against its background..
