Another amazing way to document a peoples history and culture. And we had a very friendly and informative guide who was more than ready and willing to answer all our questions. So if your language is not native, i advice you engage a guide.

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.
