Mogilev is one of the most ancient cities of the republic, which arose more than 7 centuries ago. In 1267 the castle was erected on a high hill in the place where the Dubrovnik River flows into the Dnieper, and then the city began to form around the castle. By the 17th century Mogilev had become a major trade and craft complex with the most perfect system of defensive devices.
Monuments of architecture of Mogilev differ in type. The city survived many houses and civil buildings in the late 18-19 centuries. The cities, that are dispersed throughout the central district of the city and beyond, have preserved the color of the historical past of the city and are now attracting interest from those tourists who prefer Tourism and leisure in Belarus.
In the heart of Mogilev there is a huge stone building with a massive portico on the main facade. This building was a former cathedral church of Stanislaus, built in the middle of the 18th century. The building is compact, rectangular, has six pillars, which within it form a space of three naves. This layout was not new, it was traditional for the cult construction of those times. The main facade of the building is parade and plastic. Its main composition is a large four-column portico of the Ionic order. Flanking towers complement the facade, giving it completeness and expressiveness. Decorative design is in the Baroque style. Currently, the trip to Mogilev is included in most of the tourist programs aimed not only at ordinary holidays in Belarus, but also such as “Ecotourism in Belarus”, “Rest of the weekend in Belarus” (or “Rest in Belarus for the weekend”), “Active rest in Belarus” , “hildren’s rest in Belarus” and many other programs that involve tourism and recreation in Belarus.
