Lights Alley, Brest

(4.8/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Walk down , where each lantern sculpture tells a story. Each gas lamp is part of an elaborate piece of metal artwork that pays homage to everyday people. Sit in an old carriage or on a bench below a little cupid with an arrow. See a giant nose sticking out from an officer's collar, illustrating a satire by famous Russian writer Nikolai Gogol. Other sculptures include a little shoe shiner, an artist's easel, a tradesman selling pretzels, and more. At sunset, the lamplighter starts turning up the lanterns by hand. You can watch a light show from one of the many small cafes nearby. Arrange your visit to Lights Alley and discover more family-friendly attractions in Brest using our Brest vacation planner.

  • Good idea, in my opinion, for walks in summer or spring day. You can make a sufficient number of excellent photos. Pretty busy place, located along the street.

  • Very touching tradition, when the evening special person goes and lights the lights. As in fairy tales from childhood. Highly recommend for a good mood and pleasant pastime

  • Dude lights the gas lamps, climbs to everyone, just show some, but lights shine quite dimly, or I thought.
