|12:00||The village of Stankovo|
Nowadays there is a great number of cultural and historical landmarks of Belarus dedicated to the Great Patriotic War. With Victory Day at hand we invite you to a motor excursion to the village of Stankovo – a place where an old guerilla camp has been recently reconstructed.
The village of Stankovo which had been found in the 15th century was occupied during the war and therefore was a place of guerilla actions. This village is the birthplace of Marat Kasei, a famous guerilla boy who sacrificed his life for the sake of his motherland: being severely injured by a bullet, Marat let the enemy shooters come close and detonated a bomb, taking away their lives along with his own. His fate is similar to the fates of 370000 guerillas who operated on the territory of Belarus during the war period.
If you come to Stankovo, you can pay a visit to a war museum in the open air with lots of firearm units and military enginery of The Second World War to take a look at; you can also step inside the old dugouts at the guerilla camp that will make you feel the spirit of war.
Apart from that, you will also be able to take a horse ride and visit the local zoo where you can see ostriches, peacocks, foxes, wolves, deers, bears and many other animals in the other part of the touristic complex.
Paying a visit to Stankovo is a perfect opportunity to spend a day in the open air, to enjoy the atmosphere of wartime and to catch a glimpse of the enchanting Belarussian nature. Do not miss it!
|12:00||The Historical and Cultural Complex “Stalin Line”|
The historical and cultural complex "Stalin Line" is one of the most outstanding fortification ensembles of Belarus. It was constructed by the 60th anniversary of the Victory of Soviet people in the Great Patriotic War on the initiative of the "Memory of Afghanistan" charity foundation with the support of the President of Belarus. The complex was being constructed with the help of state and public organizations, enterprises of various kinds of ownership and just all the enthusiastic people, who wanted to take part in the process. The main burden of the construction felt the engineering forces of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Belarus. The complex was opened on June 30, 2005. And it is intended not only to perpetuate the grand system of defensive fortifications of "Stalin Line", but also to become a symbol of the heroic struggle of the Soviet people against the German fascist invaders.
