Plans for new bike routes in Novogrudok District to boost tourism

GRODNO, 20 October (BelTA) – New cycling routes in Novogrudok District will run through the places associated with King Mindouh and poet Adam Mitskevich, BelTA learned from Deputy Chairman of the National Tourist and Sport Union Sergei Koleda.

Four new tourist cycling routes in Novogrudok District will run through the most important historical sites.

“The routes have been developed in cooperation with specialists of the National Tourist and Sport Union. We considered a number of criteria for the routes. First of all, the route should be interesting, accessible for cyclists with different levels of training, convenient for traveling. It also should showcase the beauty of the region and local sights,” noted Sergei Koleda.

A two-kilometer ring-type trail will be named King Mindouh. Another, 12-kilometer, track titled as Grazyna’s Heart will take tourists to the places associated with Adam Mitskevich. The two routes will kick off from the tourist and information center in Novogrudok.

The 30km tour “Lithuanian Chronicles” will follow the area’s historical “pearls”: Lubcha Castle and Lauryshava Monastery. Tourists will also be able to visit the WWII related places: a partisans’ camp, a museum and a sightseeing platform.

The new cycling tracks are developed in line with the local initiative Developing Tourism in Novogrudok Together, which is part of the UNDP project Support to Local Development in the Republic of Belarus, and are financed by the European Union. The initiative is implemented by the Novogrudok chary foundation We are Our City. A website, which is currently under development, will provide the information about the tourist potential of Novogrudok District.
