And a few kilometers from Dud is the "Belarusian Jerusalem" - the city of Ivieu. Despite the small size of the former place, first mentioned in 1444, there are Orthodox and Catholic churches, a Tatar mosque and a synagogue building. And the city is blessed by Jesus Christ, whose statue majestically rises above Ivieu.
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".
