Užanka - is a village of Nesvizh district, Minsk region of Belarus. The main attraction, sight and landmark of the village of Užanka is the old Catholic chapel. This small temple was built in the village of Užanka in the distant 1580s. The chapel has survived to this day in almost completely original form. However, in June 1990 this ancient chapel was overlaid with a single layer of modern brick (see photo). Used red and white bricks from which a characteristic pattern was laid. This element of the chapel greatly violated the authenticity and originality of the appearance of the temple. Thanks to this pattern, the chapel in the village of Užanka looks like a much more modern building than it really is. Now only massive semicircular extensions in the altar part of the temple convey the spirit of antiquity and indicate the venerable age of this ancient chapel. Today the temple is active. So, the old Catholic chapel in the village of Užanka is an interesting attraction, sight and landmark of Belarus, an important architectural monument of the 16th century, as well as a cultural and historical value of the country. In the village of Užanka, there was also a 19th century manor complex. Until our time, only one farm building has survived from this estate, namely the former stable.
