All over Belarus you can still find traces of the Soviet Union. In all the towns we visited there is still a monument to Lenin to be found, usually in front of the town hall. So Zaslavl is no exception.

Another local customs is that you may see a red star attached to the wall of the house by the house number. This indicates that a war surviver lived/lives there.

On the second photo you will see that the tradition to show portraits of the best town council workers outside the town hall is still very much alive.
