Castles of Belarus

There was a fortified castle in almost every major city in Belarus in the Middle Ages. Most often, these castles were made of wood, permanent war and a time destroyed them. To the present days in Belarus there are only a few stone medieval castles, and later aristocratic castles. These architectural monuments are today the biggest sights of Belarus, and are particularly valuable in terms of Belarusian history and culture.
