Belarus as an independent country appeared on the map only in 1991 and became a Terra Incognita in the centre of Europe, in spite of the fact that Belarus’ history had begun many centuries ago. Its extraordinary history cultivated special character traits of our people, the main of them are tolerance and diligence. Belarusian people have been always enjoying receiving guests and have been perfect at this. This tradition is alive today.
It is surprising how the past and the present, traditions of the East and the West exist in close relations here. For a long time people of different nationalities and creeds have been living in peace and consent.
Everything denotes harmony on this land. Medieval castles, small village churches, remarkable landscape, sheer beauty of cool forests with primeval nature which are a paradise for hunters, and clear like tears silent lakes. Belarus’ unique natural environment is host to a fascinating selection of rare plant and animal species, several National Parks and a range of significant conversation projects. Since old times Belarus has been called ‘blue-eyed”. And this is not in vain! There are more than ten thousand lakes and twenty thousand rivers are considered to be a treasure for fishermen and for lovers of such sport activities as diving and boating. A special offer is rural tourism that became fashionable nowadays!
Belarus is a unique country which is known for its rich and colourful heritage and culture. Places, people, myths and legends all come together to tell us stories that fascinate and inspire. They provide vital clues about our past and are therefore vital to our present and future. The birthplace of Chagall, Tadeush Kosciushko, and Zhores Alferov, Belarus is full of customs and traditions, many with a very long history. Some are quirky, others funny, but they are a part of the Belarusian way of life.
We looked after the remains of our past. Astounding ancient castles where famous battles were fought, strongholds and fortresses built to keen invaders, palaces and ancestral manors are just waiting to be discovered.
Every tourist can find something for himself, no matter whether you love history or prefer modern attractions, admire classic arts or stick to avant-gardism, whether you are keen on active recreation or just quit contemplation… So Belarus can offer something for every taste.
Captivating excursions, wakes in reserved areas, folk holidays, museums, paddling, horse riding, cycle touring, hunting and fishing is not a complete list of what is waiting for you!
