Aircrafts Museum and Raubičy Olympic Training Center
Up and down, then up and down again! From a cosmic altitude to a green valley! Firstly we'll visit Aircrafts Museum near Minsk, which exposes many Soviet and modern planes and helicopters, civil and military ones. It has even a "cosmic" exposition visited and supported by cosmonauts! Then, we'll go to the hilly North, where the National Winter Olympic Training Center in Raubičy village is situated. Built in the 1970-s, it hosted many skiing and biathlon world cups. The complex was artistically inserted into the natural surface, which, although, preserved a wonderful church on the top of a hill, where the museum of Belarusian folk crafts is situated. The unique collections will tell you much more about the Belarusian culture than big city entertainments! After, we'll come back via a settlement of new-riches with its distinctive orthodox churches and artificial lakes. Nice local cafe and a forest on the way back will make the way easy and pleasant. . .
