A sharp contrast to the capital of Minsk, Brest is a city filled with fortress ruins, old culture, and medieval history.
On the 9th (Sun), examine the collection at The 5th Fort Museum, get engrossed in the history at Memorial Complex Brest Hero-Fortress, see the interesting displays at Brest Railway Museum, then admire the striking features of Bison on Route Brest - Minsk, and finally examine the collection at War Museum - Territory of the World. On the 10th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: examine the collection at Saved Artifacts Museum, then don't miss a visit to Lights Alley, and then make a trip to Gogolya Street.

Plan my Brest trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Minsk to Brest is an approximately 3.5-hour car ride. You can also take a train; or take a bus. In October in Brest, expect temperatures between 53°F during the day and 41°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Mon) to allow enough time to drive to Grodno Region.
