Brest Holidays

Brest, situated right on the border with Poland, is one of Belarus’ most intriguing and welcoming cities. A visit here is often the highlight of a tour to Belarus as visitors are charmed by the pleasant atmosphere amongst the bright streets lined with trees, wooden buildings and ornate churches, and the carefree attitude of its inhabitants.

Perhaps the undoubted highlight of a visit to Brest is the Brest Fortress; built between 1838 and 1842 this is a sprawling complex where two regiments of brave soldiers kept the German army at bay for a month during World War II despite a relentless onslaught of bombs and cannon fire. The fortress is a solemn and grand reminder of the heroism of those under siege and is a must-see on a trip to Belarus.
