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