Nowadays, scientists, art historians and, of course, painters from all over the world come to this city to feel the atmosphere and see where one of the brightest representatives of the world avant-garde of the twentieth century lived and worked. Not only has the city preserved the family house of the painter, or established an Art Center in his name, it seems to have strived to preserve the spirit itself, regardless its progressive development and growth, still staying the Vitebsk of Marc Chagall.

Naroch Lake is the biggest lake in Belarus. It’s a part of a system of 9 lakes, being a part of the national park along with pinewood forests and a number of rivers. The length of the park from north to south – 34 km, from west to east – 59 km. But the real treasure of the region are its lakes. The waters are crystal clear, located in the heart of nature, and it’s close to perfection if you want to spend a calm and relaxing weekend with water or hiking activities. Naroch National Park has about 30 routes for tourists, multi-day hiking, cycling and water trips suggested, 16 tourist sites are equipped on the shoreline.

Hunting and fishing, spear fishing, diving tours are also organized in the park.
