Wiazynka (or Vyazynka) is a small village located not far from Minsk. Here, at folwark, in 1882 was born Ivan Lutsevich, better known as Janka Kupala the poet, playwright, publicist, Belarusian literature classics. His family was noble, although both of Kupala’s parents were employed as tenant farmers at the folwark. Kupala was thus essentially born into a landless peasant class. Kupala received a traditional Belarusian education, completing his studies in 1898. Following the death of his father in 1902, Kupala worked a variety of short-term jobs, including as a tutor, a shop assistant, and a record keeper.

Every year, during summer solstice, here celebrate Midsummer (Kupalle on BY).
This is a pagan summer celebration of fertility. Lately it was renamed into a Christian celebration of St John’s Day.  That fest usually involves youth going into a forests and the meadows, wearing flowers and grass garlands, dancing in roundelay around fires, jumping through fires.
A popular kind of Midsummer Night is fortune-telling – putting wreaths on water. People believed that on Midsummer Night the fern has a very special flower the fern flower (paparats-kvetka on BY) is glowing in the dark. The fern flower give a ability to see the future and find all the world’s hidden treasures. If you find the flower, you’ll be happy. But no one has found this yet. Search of the fern flower is one of the most mysterious rituals of Midsummer Night.

In 1972, the Government of Belarus has decided to establish the literary-memorial reserve writer.
Today the farm looks the same as in the XIX century and literary museum located there. Near the house the trees grow planted by the Kupala’s wife together with Belarusian writers and fans of the writer.
The reserve area is about 21 hectares. Nearby is the railway. Also near water channel connecting the Svisloch river and Vilija river. This is Vileika-Minsk water system, water system of Minsk.

“Our Lady of Banneux” is the sobriquet given to the apparition of the Virgin Mary to Mariette Beco, an adolescent girl living in Banneux, province of Liège from Belgium.
Between January 15 till March 2, 1933, Mariette Beco told her family and parish priest of seeing a Lady in white who declared herself to be the “Virgin of the Poor”, saying I come to relieve suffering and believe in me and I will believe in you. In one of these visions, Mariette said the Lady asked her to drink from a small spring, telling her the spring was for healing and “for all nations”. Over time theplace drew pilgrims. Today, the small spring yields about 2,000 gallons of water a day with many reports of miraculous healings.

Pilgrims come to Aglona every year on August 15 to celebrate the day of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary into Heaven. It is one of the most well-known sacred sites in the world. The Dominican order founded a monastery and built the first wooden church in Aglona in the 17th century. When in 1699 the wooden church burned down, the stone building of a monastery and the present temple was built on its place in 1768 – 1780. The interior finish of the church was created in the 18th – 19th century, but the pulpit and the organ – at the close of the 18th century.
