The Vitebsk Oblast, the northern most district of Belarus, is bordered by Lithuania on the west, Latvia on the northwest and Russia on the north and the east.
The extensive clearing of the land has not destroyed the scenic beauty of the lakes and streams. The small villages, … originally built along the lakeshore, … have been expanded and now occupy the slopes and ravines surrounding the lakes. Eleven of the nineteen major lakes of Belarus are in this district.
Winters in the city of Vitebsk, … as in all of Belarus, … are long and cold. Here in this area, the snow is usually on the ground for five months out of the year; but in the southern part of the country it lasts only four months.
Vitebsk, like the rest of Belarus, is an interesting place with a rich history dating back for a thousand years but tourists are rare. Occasionally, tour busses with visitors from Russia or Europe make a short stop in this city sharing the same roadway as the Belarus Tractor.
Belarus Tractors are common on the farm and in the city. Fortunately, we will be traveling by car to the next stop … Mogilev.
