The first in Belarus park-museum of interactive history "Sula" is located in mere 49 kilometers from the capital, on the beautiful shore of the lake of the same name.

In there, a new world opens, where borders between material and spiritual are erased and the lost connection with out past is restored... Everything lets us dive into the delicate and charming world of a Byelorussian estate of 18th century.

In 17th century the park territory belonged to the king of Poland and the grand Lithuanian duke Stephen Bathory, and in the middle of 18th century the ownership of the borough by the river Sula was given to the Lensky family. Amazing aura of past centuries still lives in every corner of the three hundred years old park: mysterious stone outhouse with sacral signs of its facade left once by "free masons"; hidden from people's eyes "tayamnitsa" ("mystery") secluded chapel in the form of an ancient rotunda temple, placed on the top of a man-made 30-meter pyramidal hill.

Estate-park complex "History park Sula" along with the Mir Castle and Nesvizh Palace form a kind of golden tourist triangle of Belarus.
