Our bus will go on excursion from the House-Museum of the I Congress of RSDLP (Independence Ave., 31a). If before your departure (or on your return) you will have free time, you will be able to get acquainted with some sights of this area and first of all to see the wooden house itself, where in March 1898 the first congress of the Russian Social Democratic Workers' Party, which later became a Communist Party of the Soviet Union, took place. Opposite is the so-called "Oswald House", where the only suspect in the murder of U.S. President John F. Kennedy lived between 1960 and 1962. Next to it is one of the most solemn Minsk squares - Victory Square with a 38-meter obelisk in the center. And on the other side of the avenue there is a children's park named after Maxim Gorky, founded back in 1800.

The city of Lida is rightly proud of the castle, one of the most monumental in Belarus, which was founded almost seven hundred years ago (1323) by Grand Duke Gedimin, whose grandson Yagaylo celebrated his marriage to Princess Sophia Golshanskaya a century later. An entertaining tour of the castle and then a theatrical miniature will allow you to plunge into the depths of the past, and medieval games (archery and catapult, sword fights with knights) will add to the spectacle of spice.

There are also cult buildings of the XVIII-XIX centuries preserved in the city: the Church of the Cross erected in the Baroque style (it stands on the site of the temple, founded back in 1387 on the donations of King Jagailo) and the Orthodox Cathedral of St. Michael (former Church of PR) - the construction of which was funded by the Russian Emperor Paul I. These and many other interesting discoveries await you during the trip "Dear Castle".
