Brest

— 1 night
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, brush up on your military savvy 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 Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Grodno Region

Start off your visit on the 11th (Tue): pause for some serene contemplation at The Fraciscan Monastery and Church, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Kircha / Evangelistic Church, then contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kalozha Church Boris-Gleb Church, then see the interesting displays at Pharmacy Museum, and finally take in the architecture and atmosphere at The Jesuit Catholic Church. On the 12th (Wed), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: pause for some serene contemplation at Holy Trinity Church, take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Nicholas' Church, and then step into the grandiose world of Mir Castle.
