The highest point of Belarus land was considered to be Dzerjinskaya Mountain, 345 meters high.  Well, it can’t be compared with such mountains as, for example, the Karpati or the Caucasus but still there can be found about 25-30 representatives of mountain flora, and almost all of them are rare species, included in the Red book of the Republic of Belarus. more info

The term ‘quest’ is now familiar to homestay owners

In the beginning of May Vidomlya rural settlement hosted an unusual training . The participants got acquainted with an innovative and quiet popular tourist product – questing. Quests are a sort of educational and informative getting one's bearings. After theoretical introduction training participants implemented their knowledge on practical experience: while walking around Vidomlya they defined the key points for a quest, tips and hints, directions.

10-th Anniversary of Rural Tourism in Belarus!

20th of November is a significant date in the history of Belarusian rural tourism. Ten years ago on the 20th of November 2002 our NGO – Belarusian Association “Country Escape” - was registered. We consider this day rural tourism birthday in our country as well. We have become a strong organization uniting people willing to develop agro- and ecotourism. This is one of the most successful national projects consolidating rural dwellers, representatives of authorities and business, mass media, experts in cultural and natural heritage. During these 10 years “Country Escape” has done a lot: we have successfully implemented a range of international projects and initiatives. But what is the most important – we managed to create a team of partners who are willing to revive Belarusian village and believe that it has significant potential both economic and ideological.

We celebrated our anniversary in an unusual way. We arranged a ball in Mir castle for our members and partners. The event was a success: our homestay owners have never been so beautiful! We are happy that so mane people participated in the ball, however and it’s pity that not everybody could join us.

Anyway we send our congratulations to all our members, partners and friends! We are happy you were with us all these years! Thank you a lot!
