Transfer to Rubezhevichi (60 km)
Rubezhevichi – a place known from the XIII-XIV centuries. During the period of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania in the 16th century, not far from this place was the border of the principality – from Brest through Minsk, Novogrudok to the Dvina and Pskov possessions. Hence the name – ” milestone”. Later, alongside the Rubezhevichi, another border ran through – Polish-Soviet, which persisted until 1939. Currently, the agro-town of Rubezhevichi is rich in man-made historical monuments: it is the Jewish cemetery restored by students of the College of Siena (New York, USA) under the direction of Dr. Michael Lozman in 2008, and the burial of the victims of the Nazi invaders (360 Jews were taken to forest belt and brutally killed) – “Way of Sorrow”.  Also, the local pharmacy, which specializes in herbal preparations, gained wide popularity. This is a family business, which has existed for more than one generation.

Catholic church of St. Joseph in Rubezhevichi
Catholic church of St. Joseph – a dream of the petty bourgeois Antony Tour, that came true. In the nineteenth century, he dreamed of erecting a church in Rubezhevichi at any price: he visited the King three times in Petersburg and asked for building permit. Having received no approval, he installed a stone on one of the hills with the words that it was here that the temple would be built. For such a trick, Antony and his family were exiled for seven years to Siberia. He returned with a building permit, the gorgeous and majestic result of which you will see during the tour. And the “stone of the Tour” is still at the front entrance to the church of St. Joseph, recalling the events of antiquity.
