Bobruisk fortressBobruisk fortress - fortification complex, which was built in the first half of the nineteenth century to defend the borders of the Russian Empire in the war with France. The fortress has an eventful history: it played a role not only in the war of 1812, but also in the Decembrist uprising - here was developed the famous «Bobruisk plan» of the uprising with the arrest of Alexander I during the inspection of troops, and after the uprising, some of his participants in the fortress were serving their term. Years of the Great Patriotic War - the darkest spot on the history of the fortress - at this time there was a concentration camp for Soviet prisoners of war.During the excursion you will become witnesses of reconstruction of storm of bastions of fortress with participation of military and historical club.
The house Port-Arthur (visual inspection)Wandering about streets of Babruysk or passing with the guide, to you quite habitual beautiful house from a red brick will meet. But it is worth entering the yard - you as if you will enter other century, in other city, with others, apparently, people. The closed yard with high walls, as if a deep well. And scenes that from a heavy-duty brick of Rosenberg which is decorated with the fancy drawing. The place it attracts fans of the photo, history, toponymics. The history and the name of this house really deserve attention. It was built during the Russian-Japanese war when the story about defense of the city of Port-Arthur was very famous.
Скульптура Шуры БалаганаваGuests of restaurant, that has settled down in the reconstructed former water tower, Shura Balaganov cheerfully meets. The bronze sculpture of the hero of the novel of Ilf and Petrov "A gold calf" in 2 meters is a result of excellent work of the 26-year-old Moscow sculptor Yaroslav Borodin. Here it is possible to read a fragment from the novel where Babruysk is mentioned as the highly cultured city where all children of the lieutenant Schmidt aspired.
Beaver monumentEach city should have its own symbols, which are primarily associated with it from townspeople and tourists. Was not an exception and Bobruisk - it originated in a picturesque place - on the river Berezina. Once there was a small village, the inhabitants of which were engaged in fish and beaver industry. Therefore, according to some historians, the city received its name "Bobruisk". In 2006, the beaver became an unofficial symbol of the city and in one of the busiest places of the city a monument was erected - bronze, with a height of 1 m 70 cm, beaver, something subtly reminiscent of the venerable Bobruichanin of the beginning of the 20th century, cheerfully raises the hat-boat, passers-by.
Georgievsk church in BobrujskOne of the most interesting objects left on the territory of the fortress is St. George's Church. With a high degree of probability it can be argued that this temple was visited during the visit to Bobruisk in 1916 by Tsar Nicholas II. In 1928, the church follows the fate of most of the churches on the territory of the USSR: the domes are dumped, the bell tower is destroyed, and the garment production is located in the disfigured building. During the war in the temple there were German auto repair shops, and at its end - a canteen and a library. For almost 70 years the temple was in this terrible captivity, and in 1990 the temple building is returned to the believers.
Synagogue in BabruyskSynagogue which you will see, - the only operating Jewish temple in the city. And it in spite of the fact that Babruysk is quite often called the Jewish capital. The synagogue is more than 200 years old - unfortunately, exact year of her construction isn't known. She has endured many scrapes in 200 years of the existence - the desolation located in her Romashka studio. And only in 2002 the temple has found new life - to the city there has arrived the rabbi Shaul Hababo and at once has started working. During the excursion you learn about result of his works.
