Kosava castle is a ruined neo-Gothic castle built in 1830 by Graf Wandalin Puslowski. It is near the palace where Andrzej Tadeusz Bonawentura Kościuszko was born. The architect of the castle was Frantisek Yascholda. The ruined castle is similar to a replica of Tadeusz Kościuszko's house in Merechevschina. After the collapse of the January Uprising in 1863, ownership was transferred to the Trubetskoy family and other Russian aristocrats. During World War I and World War II, the place was severely damaged. Currently, the castle is in the process of restoration.

Beatiful palace. The museum is not so interesting, just some pictures and text, interior is not completed yet. Also there is a birthplace of Tadeusz Kosciuszko. Beautiful monument and park. Must see in Belarus.

Nice historical site. Although it's good to keep in mind that people there mostly don't speak any other languages but Russian. Not many people know that there is also a WW2 jewish mass grave nearby the palace in the forest. For some reason local authorities don't mention it, last time I was there there was no even a small sign showing the way to the grave, unless you have already found it yourself.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
