First in Belarus museum of river anchors will be opened at Mirogoshch village of Cherikov district

First in Belarus museum of river anchors will be opened at Mirogoshch village of Cherikov district. The idea has been suggested by the owner of “Lileya” agrifarmstead Sergei Dubyago, who has been collecting anchors for a long time. When he started to collect them, it was a pure accident – Sergei stepped on something while bathing in the Sozh, and when he realized it was an anchor, he took it up. So it has been going on. When people heard about Sergei’s collecting anchors, they started to bring him theirs. Some of anchors were found in the river; during his vacations, Sergei went upriver the Sozh to expeditions in search of anchors. So far, there are 27 anchors of different historical periods in his collection. Soon one more exhibit having been found in the Sozh recently will be added to the collection.

In his farmstead Sergei Dubyago is going to make a spacious hangar with special lighted platforms holding anchors, thus giving tourists a chance to learn from the history of Belarusian and Russian anchor production. The agrifarmstead’s owner will hold voyage excursions down the river on a small vessel for six passengers.
