There you'll meet the masters who will show you the crafting process and some of them will take you as an assistant for a while! An old mill with miller's house, stable for horses and domestic animals will reinforce your impression of country side. At the brandy kitchen you will taste traditional Belarusian strong drink, then bread made in the oven at the bakery, cheese made from the milk of local cows. . . For sure, you would like to stay here longer! Just to breathe fresh air at countryside, just enjoy the Nature and the natural items, just to touch the roots of the ancient culture.
