The city tour includes visiting main city churches and streets and famous Brest Hero Fortress.

A majestic Soviet style war memorial was constructed on the site of the 1941 battle, to commemorate the known and unknown defenders of the Hero-Fortress. This war memorial is the largest tourist attraction of the city. In addition, an archaeological museum of the old city Berestye is located on the southern island of the Hero-Fortress. It offers objects and huts dated back to the 11th - 13th century, that were unearthed during excavations in the 1970s.

Brest is proud of its shopping Mall, Sovietskaya Street. It was dramatically reconstructed in 2007 - 2009 to revive the initial view of the old town. In July 2009 the Millennium Monument of Brest was unveiled. Brest City Park is 100 years old, but looks quite new after the recent reconstruction. Brest is home to two Universities: A.S.Pushkin State University, State Technical University.

Brest rowing canal is a unique piece of nature. There are no big waves thanks to the wind rose which is extremely favorable. The course’s situation is also very convenient: centre of the city of Brest, 3 km from the Polish border. The construction and the equipment of the newly opened Centre allow to run training sessions all-the-year-round for professional sportsmen as well as for the beginners. The unique range of sports facilities meet all international standards. That was the reason for choosing this area as the main training base of the national rowing team. The Centre is challenged to host international competitions up to the highest level.

This tour can be combined with others on request.

Brest Fortress

Brest Fortress earned the title of Hero Fortress for the courage demonstrated by Soviet soldiers when they fought against the German army in 1941. Whilst the Nazis took the town of Brest – 90% of which was destroyed in the fighting – the two regiments garrisoned inside the fortress held out.

For the people of Belarus, Brest Fortress remains a famous symbol of the Soviet resistance during World war II.

"I'm dying, but don't give up! Goodbye, Motherland" - an inscription made in the Brest Fortress on July 20, 1941 during its defense during the Great Patriotic War.
