City Hall (Ratusha), Vitebsk
(4.7/5 based on 65 reviews on the web)
Learn about regional history by exploring archaeological remains, numismatics, ancient weapons, and Masonic items in the Local Lore Museum at City Hall (Ratusha). The building itself has a colorful history--it served as a watchtower, a court, and a bank. It also hosted the city administrative board. Enter the foyer and see a 2 m (6.5 ft) tall bronze coat of arms of Vitebsk--placed as a memorial to partisans who were hanged in front of the hall during World War II. The museum features nearly 200,000 artifacts. Look for a 13th-century birch-bark letter, a 17th-century silver knight’s belt, and 19th-century weapons from the Napoleonic Wars. Put City Hall (Ratusha) into our Vitebsk Region vacation route planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Very happy. 1.5 hours sightseeing tour with a very good guide Ksenia. Surprisingly interesting about the history of Vitebsk of ancient times and times of the great patriotic war. The Guide has been fascinated by the history of the region and very alive and exciting tour held.

  • Located in the historic centre are all close by. Unusual looks for an inhabitant of Central Russia. The symbol of the city.
