There are many villages, which are full with the original traditional architecture from the old towns and cities from Belarus, and many household, which is now located in the environmentally clean regions and territories from this Eastern country, very wild territories and regions which are very rich in hunting facilities and possibilities for hunting and fishing (elk, spotted deer, foxes wood and even great grouse, wolves, bears etc.), and many water streams with very rich and varied, or diverse, fish stocks. This Eastern country has over 11,000 lakes, approximately 3,200 rivers of more than 4 km in the whole country, or even more in length, and more than 22,000 small and very small rivers, which make this country a blessed one.

Because the hotel industry in the country of Belarus is pretty poorly developed nowadays, the agro-tourism is becoming now popular, but if you are going there, do not expect a five star service on all of them, or on the most of them. You can find clean and safe houses, with good utilities and facilities, but primitive by the very high Western Standards. Some ways to spend time in the forests and lakes from Belarus are can fishing, gathering berries, mushrooms and flowers, daydreaming on the sunny edge of the forest or rural landscape, swimming in any lake or river without lifeguard .Overall if we are thinking, Belarus's small lakes and rivers and the pine forests found near them, are one of the most interesting landscapes that you will ever see.
