...To being an interesting attraction relating the past. It creates what authentic farms and village setting were like in the early 1900s.

Some friends took me here because I love history. I loved it. Folk art buildings, music, dancing, handicrafts, delicious local cuisine. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and highly recommend it to all.

I have visited this place many times and it's really beautiful. In fact, it's composed of authentic wooden houses and churches which were transported from historic belarusian places.

Strochitsy Outdoor Folk Museum is a gem, quite close to Minsk. Over time a range of historic farmsteads, country churches and other buildings have been shifted there and laid out in a very beautiful natural park setting by the river Ptitch (meaning "bird") .
