"Welcome to Ashmyany (Asmiany)" Ashmyany by yumyum

Ashmyany Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 4 photos

We passed through Ashmyany by bus on our journey from Vilnius (Lithuania) to Minsk.

Ashmyany was the first town in Belarus, where the bus stopped for 2 minutes. This was not enough to get off the bus to take pictures, so all my photos were taken through the tinted bus windows.

The town is only about 25 km from Vilnius and has a few sights.

    They must have been different to the tinted windows in buses today. A shame they came out so blue.

    I think most of my travels are either a bus, plane or car window!

    Pretty good pictures if taken through the bus window. Churches everywhere in Belarus, it seems.

    Hi Sonja, thanks for posting VT’s first and only page on Ashmyany, even if you were only there for two minutes. It looks like a nice place.

    "Towns seen through a bus window" is always a good start, especially when there is no other page yet on VT ! ...and archangel Michael is one of my favorite up there ;-)
