Dear friends and guests!


We are happy to greet you on the Internet page of Brest district.

Brest district is located in the south-west of the Republic of Belarus, on the borders with Poland and Ukraine. The unique nature, centuries-old cultural traditions in combination with hospitability is the main attractiveness of our Pribuzhye land.

As an administrative unit Brest district was founded on the 15th of January, 1940. The district united the lands through which from ancient times lively trade routes passed, and later it united the strategic roads from the north to the south as well as from the west to the east.

Our land has always been generous for talented and dedicated people. Yulian Nemtsevich, a Polish writer and public person, and Kazimir Lyshchinskiy, a Belarusian thinker, educator and scholar-materialist, were born in Pribuzhye. Afanasiy Felippovich, a writer and religious figure canonized to orthodox saints, left a bright imprint in the history. Village Rakovitsa of Brest Region is the birthplace of Fedor Tolochka, the founder of physical chemistry.

In village Skoki of Brest region on the eve of signing of the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk in 1918 were reached the agreements, which stopped bloody hostilities at the fronts of the First World War.

During the years of the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945 years the residents of the district suffered from very severe trials. Today on the territory of the district there are numerous monuments, common graves, obelisks, memorial plaques, which are the evidence of our memory about the fallen during the war.

The first postwar years and decades were also very severe. But thanks to the selfless work of our people it became possible in historically short period of time to overcome hunger, terrible devastation and to restore peaceful life.

Pribuzhye is proud of its natives: Peter Klimuk, a cosmonaut, twice Hero of the Soviet Union, Peter Prokopovich, the chairman of the National Bank of Belarus, the Hero of Belarus.

Today Brest district harmoniously combines traditions and modernity. The district makes a great contribution to social-economic development of the region and the Republic.

Our district is always open for contacts and cooperation, participation in various humanitarian, educational and economic programmes and projects. We are happy to greet investors and ready to be good partners for domestic and foreign entrepreneurs.

Welcome to Pribuzhye!
