As people, as the cities or places - so roads have the history. They as if arteries for centuries penetrate the earth. On them kings and emperors, writers and artists, farmers and handicraftsmen, mail carriers and messengers followed – on them we follow today. We suggest to go to a way on main "highway" of Grand Duchy of Lithuania – The Starovilensky way. As well as 9 centuries ago it originates in Minsk - the modern Belarusian capital, and conducts in Vilno – the skilled capital of the great state Grand Duchy of Lithuania. The bewitching atmosphere and history of the Belarusian places against the background of the virginal nature – not to have eyes glued!
