The Tower of Kamyanyets (Kamyanyetskaya Vyezha) is the main landmark of Kamyanyets and also a national historic site of Belarus. It is also often referred to by the misnomer White Tower. The 30 metres high tower was errected as a castle keep between 1271 and 1288 by Oleksa, who was a prominent architect of the region.

Nowadays the well preserved tower houses a local museum. In summer 2011 the entrance fee was 2500 BYR and taking photos cost an additional 1000 BYR.

Directions:
The Tower of Kamyanyets stands near the northern end of Kamyanyets' old town. From a small hill it overlooks the Liasnaja river.
