Kamyanyets Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 32 photos
We first heard about Kamyanyets from a young Belarusian couple whom we met by chance on the train from Minsk to Zaslavl. We told them about our travel plans for Belarus and they recommended us to take a day trip to Kamyanyets from Brest, which was our next planned destination after Minsk.
So during our 3 days in Brest we took the chance to also explore Kamyanyets. It is also often transliterated as Kamenets and has a population of about 9000 people. The town is located about 35 km north of Brest and belongs to the Brest Oblast.
The main reason why tourists visit Kamyanyets is the Tower of Kamyanyets, whose history dates back to the late 13th century. Other well worth seeing sights include the Russian Orthodox Church of St. Simon, the Roman Catholic Church of St. Peter and Paul and the Monument to Oleksa.
