Without war Grodno could be another Prague

Grodno has always been a point of gravity through the ages. Numerous temples, grand prince, magnate and royal residences of Grodno were a trait of a rich and free city. Unfortunately the most ancient part of the city is mostly lost now or rebuilt. The exhibition “Grodno Gates” shows the best examples of local architecture.
