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.

  • Currently, the Town Hall is located the Museum of local lore. The exposition is quite poor, once you can visit with a fact-finding purpose.

  • Interesting architecture. Looking at pictures of old Vitebsk, realize that City Hall is permanent! Practically a symbol of Vitebsk.
