Sovetskaya Street, Brest

4.4
#1 of 13 in Sightseeing in Brest Region
Landmark Tourist Spot
Walk on Sovetskaya Street along old buildings, new shops, outdoor cafes, and restaurants. This pedestrian promenade is also known as "Brest's Broadway" or simply "the mall." Take note of the gas lamps, which are hand-lit every evening. Look for the big panoramic mural depicting 17th-century Brest. Amenities include an indoor winter garden, the red-brick former town hall, a clock tower, a multiplex cinema, and a shopping center. To experience a bit of the local culture, try on the "lucky boot"--a metal sculpture on a small pedestal--in front of the shopping center.

  • Very nice promenade, which resembles a little Poland years 90. It can be fun to spend time in coffee shops or on a walk. Another attraction are the gas lanterns lit on a daily basis by a special "the lighthouse keeper".

  • Alley (if you can call it that) is very interesting and unusual framed on the street very much shops and cafes:) and the main idea: Lamplighter at a certain time specified on the clock comes on and lights the lanterns;)

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.
