"Visa are for cowards!" Gudogay by Rusket
Gudogay Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 29 photos
This page is about a small place called Gudagay in the region Hrodyenskaya Voblasts' in Belarus. Since it is not a VT destination, I have put it here in the Hrodyenskaya Voblasts' section. I should have removed the last sentence now, since Brad found out that the name of the place is spelled Gudogay, and it IS a VT destination of it's own. But I simply love to write "Hrodyenskaya Voblasts'" ! And it still is in Hrodyenskaya Voblasts :-)
It is the story of how (from left to right on the picture) poons, bradbrown, BodX, cachaseiro, Razmatac and (not in the picture) Backpackermoose and myself ended up in this yet not very well known place, and how we spent the 3 - 4 hours there before the armed guards escorted us onto the train back to Vilnius.
Belarus is a very cold place in winter. You should be prepared for temperatures below -20 C. BodX' boots were not warm enough, mine made of tangled wool were better! But then, I am Norwegian and used to temperatures like that ;-)
As you can see, the information from / about the county Osjmjanskaya is very good and detailed. Unfortunately my belorussian is not very good, thus I have found some information from the catholic church in Grodno Region (Hrodyenskaya Voblasts') on the web:
The main city in Hrodyenskaya Voblasts' is Grodno.
Area of Hrodyenskaya Voblasts': 25.000 square kilometers
Gudagay is in the deanery of Astravets (Ostrovec).
I loved the Vilnius - Minsk train! Take a look at the closeup of one of the curtains in pic 2! What a pity we were... more travel advice
The restroom standard is not the best I have seen. Toilets are in an outhouse, they are dirty and without toilet paper.... more travel advice
