Kobryn Military History Museum named after A. Suvorov

In Kobryn museum occupies two buildings. In a small house, you can get acquainted with the life and work of the famous Russian commander Suvorov. Why is this museum appeared in Kobryn? The Russian empress Catherine the Great gave Kobryn to commander for the fact that he suppressed the revolt of Tadeusz Kosciuszko. This is a dubious achievement, but in Soviet times Suvorov Museum enjoyed a lot of attention. Now the exposure in a small building tells the story of Kosciuszko's revolt and about life of Suvorov in my town.

Today I was in a large building of the museum. The exhibition introduces visitors to the seven centuries of history of the city. I visited the two floors of the museum. looked a collection of weapons. I took over 200 pictures and wanted to share them with you. But when I took a public computer, a nasty surprise waiting for me. The virus has blocked all my shots and I could not put them into the network. I am very upset because I was deprived of the opportunity to "cure" the stick. (((

Therefore, I will show only those photos that I found on the internet. Maybe in September I will be able to get to the school computer and show you all my pictures.


So, the exhibition is called "Seven centuries of Kobryn". The first floor presents the history of the ancient town, the development of Kobryn to the early 20th century. Since Soviet times, the history of any city is divided into two parts: before 1917 and after 1917. Why so? Because in 1917 there was a revolution in Russia and the Bolsheviks began to rule the country. Therefore, on the first floor you can see ancient coins, a large collection of weapons of past centuries. You will learn  that the battle with Napoleon's troops were near from Kobryn.



The second floor of the museum dedicated to the 20th and 21st centuries. First, the guide will tell you that in 1921 Belarus was divided into 2 parts and the western part of the country joined to Poland. You will see the money, documents, photographs of this period. Next, you'll learn about the partisan and underground movement during World War II. You will be able to look at the bombs that fell on the people in 1941. The exhibition ends with a history of Kobrin's symbol - a monument to commemorate the victory over Napoleon's troops.


On the ground floor there is a souvenir crush, where you can buy pamphlets, brochures, magnets, mugs and much more.

    1. As I recall, museum admission is very cheap - about 50 cents. Tour costs about $ 3. If you want to make a picture in memory, you have to pay for this service (about a dollar). My father is an invalid, he visited all the museums for free. Of course, the more famous museums have higher prices for their services.
