Full description
Enjoy the convenience of being picked up from accommodations in Brest. Discover the city of the Brest, the administrative center of the Brest region. The city is the traditional “western gate” to the country. In 1390 it was the first city in Belarus that obtained self-government on the basis of the Magdeburg Law. The historical union, which reconciled and united Catholic and Orthodox confessions in Belarus was concluded here in 1596.

Visit Brest fortress, one of the city’s most popular attractions. The fortress was built in 1842 when the entire city of Brest was moved 3 km east. In the place where Brest once stood, a massive fortress was raised. See where soldiers staged a prolonged defense against the Nazis in 1941. Brest Fortress was ruined after several severe battles. Pay your respects at the remains of the fortress and the grandiose monument to its defenders.
