The Brest Fortress is located at the West border of Belarus, about 350 km from Minsk and 10 km from the border with Poland. Belarus is also called a “blue-eyed” country due to the large number of lakes. Another name for Belarus is “lungs of Europe”. This is due to the large number of forests and fields.
