Belarus - Dzyarzhynskaya Hara 346m

Last updated October 2013

Dzyarzhynskaya Hara is named after Feliks Edmundovich Dzerzhinsky (1877 - 1926) was a Communist revolutionary, famous as the founder of the Bolshevik secret police, the Cheka, and a great hero of Soviet Communism.

There was a move in 2005/2006 to rename the hill top to Gora Svyataya, but it appears that this was unsuccessful.

Google Maps can be useful for planning.

At time of writing, there is no active Belarus Tourist Website. However belarus.embassyhomepage.com, the official website of the Belarus Embassy in London will provide some useful information.
