Belarus - Dzyarzhynskaya Hara

, 346m - Info | Summit Log

Introduction:


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.
