Mogilev. The capital of the country once, now the city of Mogilev is the third largest settlement in Belarus. Of great historical and cultural interest for tourists can be the late 17th-century town hall. A symbol of the city and one of the best pieces of civil architecture, Mogilev City Hall sustained serious damages during the wars, but at last was restored and now is the city’s must-see. Other important landmarks of Mogilev are the six-pillared St. Stanislaw's Cathedral, built in the Baroque style, and the convent of St. Nicholas.
