Grodno is one of the most interesting cities Belarus for tourism in which there are really many attractions. Those who already know and have visited all the main objects, like Kolozhskaya church и Farny church, I propose to see a list of less popular, but quite unusual places Grodnowhich are often overlooked.

House of Masons

address: Lane Telegrafny 15A

date of construction: 1783-85

architecture: late classicism

Initially, the house had only one floor and was built as a personal residence of the architect. Giuseppe Sacco. Meetings of the Grodno Masonic Lodge "Happy Liberation" were also held here, from where the name "Masons' House" came from. After the Second World War, a medical facility was located within the walls of this house.

Another one residence of the last king of the Commonwealth in Grodno. Interestingly, the architect Giuseppe Sacco was also responsible for the construction.

Sapieha-Brzostowski Palace “Batoryevka”

address: Karl Marx street, 1

date of construction: late 17th century

architecture: eclecticism/classicism

The building next to the Church of St. Xavier is considered one of the oldest secular buildings in Grodno. At one time, this palace belonged to the Pototskys, then to the magnates Sapieha, Brzostowski and many others. Each new owner made changes to the architecture of the 3-story building. From the second half of the 19th century, Batoryivka became the property of the merchant Lapin, who opened the Central Hotel here and also rented out premises. The modern history of the palace is already connected with the anatomical department of the Grodno State Medical University; for some time there was even a museum “Grodzenskaya Kunstkamera” working here.
