  • A very interesting place. As if looking through a window into the past. How do we now live well and do not appreciate this!

  • One of the notable places of Brest Yes and region as a whole. The real excavation of historical Berestja. Interesting and informative. Clearly worth a visit!

  • I have always wanted to visit the archeological digs. And here it happened! This excavation also preserved in 80-IES and made him the Museum. And frankly, we seem to have visited the Museum of the Soviet times, since then nothing has changed!

Where to stay in Brest

While the city of Brest is still sizeable, it does'nt boast the abundance of accommodations that its big brother, Minsk, does. While lodging type is more or less limited to hotels, they vary in price and offerings. Hostels and a guesthouse or two provide some budget accommodation in and near the center. Most hotels and hostels will arrange to register you as a foreigner with the police. If you rent an apartment-style accommodation, make sure to check in advance whether or not your host will do so. Without registration, you can stay in Belarus for only five business days.
