OVERVIEW

Amazing tour into Ruzhany castle and Kosava palace and picturesque countryside of Belarus. 

The mystique of the Middle Ages is hidden in every medieval castle and our first stop at Ruzhany Castle will not disappoint you in that. This is one of the very unique Belarus Palaces, known as Belarusian Versailles, Artistic troops, its rich library, gallery, an architectural ensemble from the outside and Sapieha dynasty Family Museum in the inside, tells the story of wealth and power.


Kosava Palace is special in many ways, towers that were symbolizing months in the year, more than 100 rooms, a very interesting annual celebration called "Day of the Room", you will also hear the legend of the lion, who according to local tales, was guarding castle overnight, tales and mysteries, myths and legends, the beauty of Middle Ages.

And that's not all, our road will pass through many villages and small towns where people still live in traditional wooden houses, keep livestock and are in harmony with nature. Abandoned Jewish cemeteries can often be found here as well.
