A new tourist record was set in the Belarus' regional center Grodno. Over the weekend, the city and its suburbs were attended by about 3 thousand foreigners. Their majority – about 2 thousand people came to the Augustov canal visa-free. Cultural, musical and sports events are held there every week. An additional seasonal check-point at the Belarus-Poland border will serve the tourist inflow. This year, those traveling by foot or by bicycle can use it, as well.
