Svetlana Travel Agent / Travel Guide of g4 tours

Coordinator Genealogy and Travel Guide

My personal discovery of Belarus began many years ago with a visit to two of the most famous architectural monuments, which are now included in the UNESCO World Heritage List ... the residence of the Radziwill Family in the city of Nyazvish (or Nesvizh) and the Mir Castle. At that time these architectural monuments were nothing more than abandoned ruins, but they aroused my interest in researching our own history. 

However, a real opportunity to immerse myself in history and to further explore my homeland came much later. In 2018, by chance, I started working with the g4 tours team, and although not much time has passed since then, I managed to explore many hidden corners of my homeland that I had no idea about before, met wonderful people and shared unforgettable moments with our tourists.

What I like best about the g4 tours is the individual approach, where every tourist basically becomes a personal guest. And it often happens that at the end of a tour the feeling arises that we have known each other for a long time. And that is great. 

Thanks to our tourists I have learned to see the special things that distinguish us, the Belarusians, our country and our culture, in the things we are used to. 

My personal Belarus travel highlights: 

In my opinion, the most unforgettable thing is meeting people without whom it is difficult to get a complete picture of a country. Personally, I am always amazed at how open and good-natured our people are. I think they are my highlights of Belarus. And also, as one of our tourists rightly noticed, it is homemade and mostly high-proof drinks like Medovucha, Kvass, and Mors, which absolutely must be tasted.
