On the outskirts of Pinsk we are passing through a place called Lahišyn in Polesie. Since ancient times this village has been famous for its miracle-working image - the icon of Mother of God Logishinskaya. The incredible story of the struggle for the icon in the last 200 years, told "in the scenery" of the beautiful surrounding landscapes, is able to arouse genuine interest among guests.
And here before us is Pinsk - "crown" of Polesie. Over 920 years of dynamic history the city has experienced both periods of incredible rise and dramatic moments. In the early twentieth century, on the banks of Pinsk still stood a huge church of the Jesuit order and a school-collegium, built by Radziwill. Only the collegium, which houses the Polesie Museum, has survived to this day.
However, it has its own unique charm. The atmosphere of old quarters, streets, embankment makes Pinsk a museum city and one of the most beautiful places in Belarus.
During the excursion guests will visit the complex of the Cathedral Church (one of the three Small Basilicas on the territory of Belarus), erected in the Baroque style, will see the grand Jesuit collegium, Butrimovich Palace, the Church of Charles Baromey and the Church of St. Barbara - temples and buildings 230 years old and older. Well, the visit to the ancient Pinsk will end with a boat ride on the Pina River (tickets at extra charge).
