New Belarus tourism attraction: tractor assembly!

Are you looking for unusual tourism attractions? Then Belarus has an offer just for you! A local company called Minsk Tractor Works invites the tourists to come and try to assemble a tractor with your own hands!

The company has been offering tours of industrial tourism (as they call it) since the beggining of this year. Visitors have a chance to see how the tractors are produced, how certain parts and accessories are made and sit in a tractor to see how it feels like. So far over 1200 people took this chance out of which 275 were foreigners. But from now on you could be included in the whole process too.

“Many people know about ‘Belarus’ tractors, but they do not know how they are produced. Tourists are interesting in seeing the assembly process, seeing our town,” said company’s youth expert Syarhei  Sidarovich. “The MTW plans to offer new services to tourists – a tractor ride on the production site and work on the assembly line”

“Together with the plant employees, visitors will have an opportunity to carry out five operations. At the end of the tour, they will be given a certificate of participation in the tractor assembly”, – he adds.
