We present map of Belarusian sights to readers. It is marked with all sights of Belarus described on the site. In Belarus, it doesn’t make sense to travel to one sight at the moment; Belarusian sights are often not surrounded by a proper tourist infrastructure to stay nearby for more than a couple of hours. In Belarus, it makes sense to travel on tourist routes and see a few sights for a day. But in Belarus, standard tourist routes are counted mainly on dwellers of the capital or regional centers. But not all people live there. Moreover, not everyone can afford to travel purposefully on one of the tourist routes; may be there isn’t enough time or equipment. However, all people move periodically from one town or village to another, and often ask, "Where to go on the weekend?"

Our "map of independent traveler in Belarus" was created for these people. The fact is that no matter where you start your journey, and where you are going to in Belarus (even because of your personal affairs), you will surely pass by a large number of sights. For those people who do not want to miss these sights and want to visit them by the way, we created our map of Belarusian sights. Also, this map for active tourism in Belarus can be useful to any inhabitant of Belarus and foreign tourist, no matter where he lives. Looking at this map of Belarusian sights you can always create your little trip around the sights of the country, and so that it begins and ends where you need, and it lasts for as much as you can afford. And you can always be sure not to miss anything meaningful in that part of the country you visited.

 

How to use a map of Belarusian sights:

Back to the map...

On the map of Belarusian sights a star indicates the main objects in each locality. There is only one object in every village, which is designated by a star. It is the most valuable in terms of history and architecture to this locality. Circle on the map of Belarusian sights indicates the additional objects in the same locality. “Additional” doesn’t mean “uninteresting”, so just the second after the main; such a designation was created not to cover all map of Belarusian sights with only indications on a large scale (because Belarus have a lot of sights). Also, all objects are divided into three levels of importance:

  • Red color indicates the objects that have to be visited by all inhabitants of Belarus, and, if it is possible, in the first place it should be visited by foreign tourists. These are outstanding objects on the background of the Belarusian historical and architectural heritage.
  • Orange color means also very important and significant for Belarus objects. There are a lot of them, so to visit all can be difficult, but it is advisable.
  • Yellow color represents other interesting sights in Belarus, which you can visit if you travel somewhere nearby.

As individual colors represents objects:

On the map objects is divided into six layers:

  • Outstanding objects (Выбітныя аб'екты);
  • Important objects (Важныя аб'екты);
  • Interesting objects (Цікавыя аб'екты);
  • Additional objects (Дадатковыя аб'екты);
  • Other places of interest (Іншыя цікавыя месцы);
  • Natural heritage (Прыродная спадчына).

Layers can be turned on and off by using the menu in the upper left corner of the map. Thus, we suggest the following algorithm to work with a map of Belarusian sights:

  1. Turning off layer "Additional objects" you can browse the map of Belarusian sights on a large scale. At the same time each town will be displayed by a single star (main object), and its color will indicate the degree of importance of this town or village.
  2. Staying on a large scale you can also turn off the second and/or third layer ("Important objects" and "Interesting objects") if you do not have time or desire to visit these areas. You can also turn off the first layer (the "Outstanding objects") if you have already visited all the outstanding sights of the Belarusian historical and architectural heritage.
  3. Thus you slowly think over the route of your upcoming trip to the spirit: what towns and villages to visit at all.
  4. Then you will need to reduce the scale of the map of Belarusian sights, i. e. to bring it closer, and turning on the layer of "Additional objects" to look, what else can be important and you need to look in the selected towns and villages.

Additional objects is located on a separate layer, because each city corresponds to one star on a large scale (the map is not composed of only indications), the color of which characterizes the importance of the main object of this city, and the entire city at all. But it does not mean that there are no other significant sights in this city. On the contrary, there often are, and you must visit them if you pass by this city.

To come from the map of Belarusian sights to detailed description of locality or other place on the website, just click on the main subject of this town (village), i.e. the star, and click on the link posted in the description of this object, then if it is necessary, switch to your language version using flags in the upper right corner of the page.
