Sula History Park
The History Park “Grand Duchy of Sula” is the first interactive history park in Belarus, which is located on the picturesque shore of the Sula Lake just 49 kilometres from Minsk.
This place can be called in different ways: principality, estate, interactive history park, museum… Here they speak the native Belarusian language and show how our ancestors lived from common people to nobility.
The complex is arranged in such a way that the main path takes you chronologically through events in history. It is said to be the path of time. Walking along it, you will come across buildings restored and built from scratch, which belong to different epochs of Belarus. Everything starts with the Stone Age objects and ends with the Lenski family estate.
Thus, there are seven separate areas on the territory of the complex: the area of ancient man, the area of ancient Belarusian cults and beliefs, the lands of the Viking Age, the Middle Ages and the gentry, the Belarusian village and the Lenski estate and park complex.
In the Viking village there is one of the main and most impressive sights of the park. It is a ship, or rook, or drakkar. It is an exact replica of a Scandinavian ship. The guests of “Sula” can ride on this drakkar.
In the medieval era zone you can visit the museum of pottery art or the museum of education, see how the water mill looked like from outside and inside.
The Belarusian miasteczko (a historical type of urban settlement similar to a market town) is rich in tasty and useful places. There is a bakery, a pharmacy “Zyolki”, a museum of bread and cheese, a weaving workshop, a Jewish shop, a Shapovalskaya hut, a museum of beekeeping, a museum “Batleika”. Thus, in the museum of bread and cheese you can buy fresh products, in the pharmacy – medicinal collections, in the tavern – strong drinks.
The manor and park complex will surprise you with a Masonic wing, a museum-estate of the Lenski family and the “Holy Family” chapel.
There is a beach area, pavilions, children’s playgrounds on the territory. Also at the beach in good weather on weekends and public holidays there is a grill-zone with several barbecues. You can have a snack or a full meal in one of the restaurants. Also, no one is forbidden to bring your own food into the park.
Come to the park and enjoy your holidays and Belarusian history!
