Grodno city tour
Grodno is a unique Belarusian city that has preserved its century-old monuments of architecture in spite of revolutions and wars that left our country in debris quite a few times. The Neman River, several old parks and public gardens and the ragged relief of Grodno make wonderful settings for this city tour.
The historic buildings located side by side remind us of different styles and epochs and the temples among them - of traditional Belarusian tolerance that was typical of their worshippers – Catholics, Russian Orthodox Christians, Protestants and Jews. Grodno is the most European city in Belarus, with some “very-very” things to boast of: the oldest working tower clock in Europe, the first pharmacy building in Western Europe, the first botanical garden and zoo in Belarus.
We will start our Grodno sightseeing with the Church of St. Boris and Gleb (Kalozha Church) that was nominated for inclusion in World Heritage list. Located on the riverbank it dates back to the 12 century and in spite of severe damage by time and nature, it is the oldest operational church in Belarus. After a brief ride across the modern city of Grodno we will arrive to the Castle Mound. The remains of Royal Castles with splendid Neman River panoramas will be followed by a walk to Market (Soviet) Square.
A short walk away from Central Square is the Synagogue, the Firefighting watchtower and other Grodno attractions. Then another drive to see the 19th century New World (Novy Svet) district and the former Gorodnitsa area behind Lenin Square. The walk will be extended along Ozheshko Street to see the parish Russian Orthodox Church and a protestant church – the only operational Kirche in Belarus. To conclude our Grodno city tour we will definitely have a dinner in one of the local old-style establishments before going back to Minsk.
