Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • Town Hall, originally founded on this site in 1597, modern look, of course, is far from the original source. Theme changing expositions can be found at urban posters, including Internet access. Constantly put up local history section. In addition to exhibits an interesting review in all directions from the balcony, which can be reached (on the clock).
