  • In the evening, everything is already closed, and it is a pity ... But with its autumn colors allowed notice as restored at the Church of Boris and Gleb in near pristine shape! Great work restorers, surprisingly, as walls are transformed as if they remembered their youth! Autumn commits wonders, that's great, that's my hometown is decorated with bright colors on its shores.

  • Why come to Grodno? Including in order to see firsthand the church built in the 12th century. In your head doesn't fit that at 1100-something there years people have built, and we still admire. And there is much to admire in spite of the fact that half of the building collapsed in the 50-IES of the XIX century and was reconstructed in the tree. In 2018 held another reconstruction replaced the already dilapidated wood reinforced retaining walls, in General, you can safely walk again. The church operates, there are services, and many prefer to get married and baptise children specifically in the oldest church in Belarus. She, by the way, is a candidate for entering into the UNESCO World Heritage list.

  • One of the most ancient sites of Belarus. Very beautiful church, unfortunately, it is dilapidated as a result of the flooding. Part remained stone and restored-wood. The church operates. Standing on the Bank of the river Neman.
