Восеньскія дарогі Беларусі 2015 г.:  Ябравічы й Кушляны.

 

Jabravichy.  Classic solid wooden houses on a classic village main street.

Kushljany.  This village is known for its splendid museum dedicated to the outstanding 19th-century Belarusian writer, patriot and national revivalist Frantsishak Bahushjevich and located on the grounds of the former Bahushjevich estate.  However, I have chosen here to highlight an interesting example of Belarusian vernacular wooden window decorations (lishtvy – ліштвы).
