Suburbs of Minsk

The Belarusian capital is a great option for a short visa-free travel from Russia. The clean and cozy city looks completely European, and all conditions for a comfortable stay are created here for the guests. Satellite cities and suburbs of Minsk can tell the curious traveler a lot of interesting things from ancient history..

In honor of the prince's son

Zaslavl is comfortably located at the confluence of the Svisloch River into the Zaslavl reservoir. Its history goes back to the 10th century, when the Kiev prince Vladimir Svyatoslavovich built the city and named it after his son. Since then, Zaslavl has repeatedly been plundered and ravaged, always accompanying internecine wars, turned into ashes during fires, and during the Great Patriotic War it had to be occupied by the Nazis for three years.
The main attractions of the suburb of Minsk are concentrated in the historical center. The Zaslavsky castle of the middle of the 16th century served as a defense against the enemy, and even the Church of the Transfiguration on its territory had loopholes for cannons. Today guests of Zaslavl can see the castle gates, the rampart and the church. The Church of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary is included in the list of cultural values ​​of Belarus, and the exposition of the ethnographic museum with a steam mill tells the best about the life of old Zaslavl.

Active and athletic

The main attraction of Logoisk is its ski and health center. This suburb of Minsk is located 32 km from the capital and four tracks of various difficulty levels are its main pride. Of course, the level of the slopes is far from the classic Alpine standards, but it will be interesting and pleasant to spend a day at this ski resort, being in Belarus..
The tracks of the complex are maintained in perfect condition with the help of retracks, and the artificial snowmaking system allows you to ride comfortably, regardless of the vagaries of the weather. In the evening, the slopes are illuminated and it is very easy to do your favorite sport here, even if you arrive at the end of the working day..
You can stay here in a comfortable and inexpensive hotel, and rent the necessary equipment. In addition to skiing, guests of the complex can go horseback riding, play paintball, play tennis on an indoor court and celebrate any event in the restaurant..
As a cultural program in Logoisk, you can walk along the old streets and in the park near the Tyshkevich Palace, which, alas, has not survived.
