Kobrin is one of the oldest cities in Belarus with more than 700 years of history, architectural and historical ensemble of which preserved very well. History of the Kobrin associated with the name of Suvorov. He lived in these places from 1797 to 1800. In the city, there are several monuments to the Great Russian commander, I personally saw two. We started with embankment Mukhavets River, on the shore of which the sculpture boatswain is installed.

On the river bank of Mukhavets there is the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. It was built on the site of the first battle culminated in the victory of the Russian army in the 1812 war.


The embankment was restored and looks very good

This is Church of St. Nicholas beyond the river. Wooden church was moved from the village of Novoselki, where the monastery was abolished. The fact that during the spring flood the river overflowed and the believers could not cross to the other side, where there was a church.

The first mention of the town belongs to 1287 and contained in the will of Volyn Prince Vladimir Vasilkovich in the chronicles. About the origin of the name historians still argue, there are several versions. So far the opinion which prevails is that Kobrin owes its name to the nomadic peoples obry.

From the first half of the XIV century, the city was part of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. In 1404-1519 it was the center of an independent principality Kobrin, belonged to the prince Kobrin. Wooden Upper and Lower castles were built. At present, the only remains of the castle moat preserved.

Note the cobblestones!

This is the monument in honor of the victory over Napoleon in the background of the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. At this point, we spent a half hour! The tour guide told us so much that we were completely tired.

This is the monument on the square before the palace of culture. I took pictures from the bus window.

Buildings along the Pervomayskaya Street

House-Museum of Suvorov. Here he lived for some time. In the early 1860s, in the house one of the leaders of the anti-Russian uprising of 1863-1864 lived Romuald Traugutt. In general, the museum was founded in 1946 as Local History, but later became a military-historical.
