Pinsk city tour

updated on 10/02/2020

Pinsk city tour is dedicated to one of the most beautiful and oldest Belarusian cities, an unofficial capital of Polesye (Southern Belarus). We will see the monuments left behind by different regimes and governments who kept Pinsk under control and the places related to people known all over the world and discuss the most important issues in the city’s history.

Pinsk city tour will start near the Palace of Butrimovich – the man whose activity dramatically changed the look of Southern Belarus. We will proceed to the main square of the city and after crossing the Pina River will take a walk across it. Jesuit collegium – now ethnography museum, Russian Orthodox Resurrection church, the monument to Lenin and the nest of the storks are among the many highlights we will see.

The next part of the tour will take us along the pedestrian street of Pinsk – the former “gaz”) – today’s Lenina Street. The former hotels of Golzman and Kolodny followed by the 18th century Franciscan monastery will eventually lead us to the gymnasium that gave primary education - apart from other outstanding people - to Chaim Weizman, the first president of Israel.

Later on we will see Karolin – or Karlin – as the Jewish population of the suburb of Pinsk preferred to call it and Albrekhtovo areas on the scenic embankment of the Pina River. Then we will talk about the history of the Jewish ghetto in Pinsk. The rest sights covered during the tour include the main cemetery of Pinsk, the memorial at Kozlyakovichy Village and the active Hasid synagogue. As an extra treatment we can charter a boat and go up and down the stream of the central river.

Tour duration: 2.5 hours, around 30 km round way.
