Location

Pinsk is the administrative center of the Pinsk district of the Brest region. The city is located in the south of Belarus, at 180 km from Brest and at 300 km from Minsk. Pinsk is located in the picturesque place of the confluence of Pina river, which gave its name to the city, and Pripyat river. Since ancient times, the trade route «from the Varangians to the Greeks» passed through the city. Pinsk has still not lost its transport significance: today it is a major transport hub where the railways and highways intersect with the Dnieper-Bug waterway.
The city of about 47 km², Pinsk rounds out the top ten largest cities of Belarus in terms of population. It is a large industrial, cultural, and also religious center.
