  • This small church, above the river, is the oldest of the city and probably even the country. Even from the outside you can see that pretty much everything that could be found was used for construction. The side facing the river collapsed during a flood and was rebuilt, which is clearly recognizable. This does not detract from the charm of this church. Absolutely recommended.

  • The ablons are a good variant of the memory: the bachna of the a-tantith part of the temple is expressed. The temple itself is a unified one for Belarus. Jumping edges on vocals.

  • Nice church in a beautiful park only 5 min outside the city center
