экскурсии по гродно

Departure from Grodno - Naumovichi - Svyatka - Sopotskino - Usovo - Dombrovka - Nemnovo.
So, we are going to a new trip through the park "Augustow Canal", which covers not only the channel itself, but also many other memorable interesting places. And if Grodno is a city well known to tourists, then this can not be said about the Augustow Canal.

View/hide description

The Augustov Canal is a man-made hydrotechnical structure of the 19th century. This is one of the largest channels of Europe, which has become a new trade route, connecting the Vistula and the Neman. And yet, despite the importance and grandeur of the project, the history of the canal as a transport branch for the alloy of goods and timber was short-lived. With the abolition of customs duties, the development of railways in the second half of the 19th century, the August canal became unclaimed for transport. Today the Augustow Canal is a tourist waterway that runs through the most beautiful places.
