Let's start our review article from Lenin Square, which is the centre of the city. The monument erected to Vladimir Ilyich has an unusual appearance due to the waving red flag behind him. But this is not the only place to visit on the square: there is also a department store where tourists can buy souvenirs depicting the city's sights.
It is easy to walk from the centre to Primostovaya Square, from where travelers can get to anywhere in the city, after all, all Mozyr bus routes depart from this place.
Mozyr is known for its hilly reliefs, and one of the hills is now a place for city holidays, walks and recreation and it is called Zamkavaya Hara (literally Castle Hill). It is believed that the history of the city began with it. Previously, a settlement was located here, which included a detinets (city fort), a church and three defense towers. Unfortunately, the building has not survived to this day, but tourists can see modern smaller replicas on Zamkavaya Hara.
In addition, there is the Ptichskaya tower on Hara, which has an observation deck with a beautiful city view. For children, a small town with fairy-tale characters was built on Zamkavaya Hara, so they will definitely not be bored.
These museums are part of the Mozyr United Local History Museum complex, but these two are specifically located on Zamkavaya Hara or near it, so you don't have to go far. In the Paleskaya Veda museum, the tourist will get acquainted with the Poleshuki’s traditions and worldview. Here, visitors are also given a master class on weaving using a real loom.
The Mozyr Local History Museum will tell tourists more about the city of Mozyr itself in terms of its nature, archeology and the glory of internationalist soldiers.
