Here you will have an exciting trip into the world of the age-old manners and occupations as well as the tasting of distinctive Belarusian dishes. The museum of Dudutki is located 40 km far from Minsk, in Pukhovichi district, in a picturesque place near the Ptich River, a kilometer and a half far from the village of Dudichi. This village was first mentioned in chronicles in the 11th century.

The museum is a private property, and everything in it is organized at the highest level, starting from the service and ending with even the smallest trifles of each building. The village was recreated exactly in the form in which it existed hundreds of years ago. So, this is an amazing opportunity to travel back to the time of ancient White Russia. In total there are 32 objects on the territory of the complex: a windmill, a dockyard, a temple, a dairy, a bird's yard and a zoo, a brovar, a woodworking workshop, a pottery workshop, a museum of vintage cars, a bortnik house, a bakery, a smithy, an ethnographic gallery, a farm, a stable, a workshop felting, workshops of weaving and straw-weaving, weaving workshop, shopping arcades and much more. Each of them is a thoroughly reconstructed and functioning copy of the obligatory element of the Belarusian village.

«Turov» is a small town with a rich history in the Gomel region. Centuries ago the Dregovichi lived on the territory of the city and in the tenth century they founded the Turov principality here. Ancient Turov - the largest religious and spiritual center of Belarus along with Polotsk - is mentioned in chronicles since 980. The second largest temple (after the Polotsk Sophia) was built in Turov, but unfortunately did not survive because of swampy soils. And in 1056-1057 one of the first monuments of the East Slavonic writing - the Turov Gospel - was created.

Until now there is a fortified settlement of the 10th-13th centuries in Turov with fragments of the church and residential buildings, as well as the outstanding wooden architecture monument of the Church of All Saints, the cult-growing stone crosses of Turov. According to legend, stone crosses sailed - against the current - along the Dnieper and Pripyat from Kiev, where Prince Vladimir baptized Rus. Two of them ("father" and "mother") are kept in the Church of All Saints, and the third - inside the monument to Kirill Turovsky on Castle Hill.

«Pripyat National Park» In the south of Belarus, in the center of the vast Polesie lowland, there is an interesting geographic region - Pripyat Polesie, stretching along both sides of the Pripyat River in its average flow. This area is characterized by high bogging of the territory, weak development of the territory, good preservation of natural complexes. The National Park "Pripyatsky" is a unique combination of natural, cultural and historical heritage, which attracts a large stream of tourists.

«Marshes» Despite the fact that there are a lot of marshes in Belarus, marsh tourism is still not very popular among residents and foreign guests. Nevertheless, traveling through the "light of Europe" is not only a meeting with the unusual and beautiful, but also a real Belarusian extreme, which is worth trying out at least once in life. Lots of people even don’t know that it is possible, because finding information about such routs is not so simple. Few of the tourists can boast of seeing this amazing beauty in the world. You will meet fluffy birch, warty birch, dwarf pines, beaver huts, outlandish birds, pine forests on the islands, ancient beehives of forest wild bees and much more during this walk in the heart of the Lelchitsy marshes. It is recommended to wear closed shoes, a hat and long trousers.

By the end of 2012 the installation of the main production equipment was completed and the first batch of products was produced. Production of the plant began to enter the trading market in the first half of 2013.

«Pinsk» is very little known by tourists and even by Belarusians, but it has lots of unique and ancient attractions to surprise its visitors. It is one of the oldest cities in Belarus. The city was founded in 1097. This town is associated with river station, cozy cobblestone streets, quaint lanterns and exquisite multicolored houses.Large factories are working, people are running along the sidewalks, ships are sailing along Pina river… All as then - with Bona Sforza. Yes-yes, this is the same Milanese princess and the Queen of Poland - the wife of the King of Speech Busted Stephen Batory. Pinsk belonged to her in the XII century. Thanks to Bona Sforza, the development of Pinsk went on rapidly. But the golden age of the city is the XIX century when Pinsk became a trade and craft center of the region. Ancient buildings and temples, a Jesuit collegium, a palace and an underground castle, all this is Pinsk - a city of 9 centuries.

«Duboe» is a special place in the historical and cultural complex of the Belarusian Polesye. The past of the oldest village in Pinsk district is full of legends about underground passages, about ghosts, about the battles of the First World War, which left a trace on the local land.

The settlement is connected with the life of the Belarusian saints, whose activities in the 16th century people still remember today. This is Athanasius Filippovich, Abbot of Brest, Holy Martyr and Catholic Saint Andrew Boboli.

«Grodno» is one of the oldest cities on the territory of modern Belarus. It was founded in 1128. In the middle of the XIII century Grodno became a part of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania (from 1569 - part of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth). As a result of the last division of Rzecz Pospolita, held in Grodno in 1795, the city was annexed to the Russian Empire. Then it moved under the control of Poland, then transferred to the USSR, later incorporated into Germany and after liberation in 1944 by the Red Army became the administrative center of the newly created Grodno region. This status was preserved even after the formation of the Republic of Belarus in 1991.

The historical center of the city covers an area of ​​300 hectares and is a monument of town planning and history. Grodno is the only city in Belarus where the outlines of the historical center have remained unchanged. The historical center of Grodno is a monument of architecture of the XVIII-XIX centuries.
