A large and well-equipped village of Akhremovtsi is located 10 km from Braslav.
The section of the south-eastern coast of Drivyaty Lake, near the village of Akhremovtsi, occupies an array of the ancient Belmont park, built in the eighteenth century. At its creation, a high hilly terrace above the lake is skillfully used, from which a beautiful view over the Drivyaty (the name “Belmont” in French or Italian means “beautiful mountain”) opens. The lower part of the park is of a landscape type. Romantic character gives him two large ponds with ducts, islands, bays, once decorated with bridges and gazebos. Now the park is heavily overgrown, partially damaged by its plantations, but it is very promising for restoration. Here are preserved ancient alleys, beautiful clearings, traced the lines of ponds, old trees and moats, there are exotic tree species.
The park once adjoined a two-story stone palace, erected in the second half of the eighteenth century by the Gilsen, who owned the estate. At the end of the eighteenth century. the owner of the palace was the well-known adventurer, Count Italian Nicolai Manutstsi, who knew the last king of the Commonwealth, Stanislaw August. According to the convictions of his contemporaries, the son of Count Stanislav was actually the illegitimate son of the monarch. In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries Belmont belonged to the Earls of Broel Plater. During the war in 1812, the Belmont Palace was home to the commander of the 1st Western Army, M.B. Barclay de Tolly. At the same time, Alexander I visited here, a little later, for 3 days, stayed a famous French military commander, marshal, Neapolitan King I. Mirat. According to legend, Murat was detained in Belmont with a romantic relationship with the hostess of the estate Constance Plater. Hence P. Murat conducted an active correspondence, including with Napoleon. The silence and cosiness of the huge park contributed to the lyrical mood. In Belmont, the Marshal wrote several poems. There are in them such lines (translation of a subscript):
Here ruled the fragile peace, although around the war
Silence of the forests, their cover Invites to the rest of the disarmed warrior
And all here breathes happiness and tenderness.
Later, in Naples, the belarusian verses of Murat were laid to music.
In 1821 in the local places there were Decembrists M.S.Lunin and A.V. Poggio. From the middle of the nineteenth century in the palace there was a small private museum.
The magnificent ruins of the palace were dismantled for building material in the 40s of the twentieth century. Now the remains of its foundations can hardly be traced. Near the northern wing, where once there was a palace chapel, later adapted to the parish church, a Catholic church was built. In the vicinity of the park there is a chapel, built in 1858 in the style of pseudo-gothic. The main building – the tomb of the Plater graphs – is supported by side chapels, which are connected by an arched fence.
Not far from the chapel is a large group of fairly expressive barrows of the 8th-10th centuries.
