White Tower of Kamianiec
The Tower of Kamianiec
(Kamyanyets) is located in the town of Kamianiec, about 34 km
from Brest, in Belarus.
Designed by the architect
Oleksa and built during 1271-1289, the Tower of Kamyanyets remains the main landmark of Kamianiec
today. It stands atop a raised bank overlooking the Liasnaja River. Regarded as a national
historic site, the tower houses a branch of the Brest regional museum.
The great round tower is a
part of the motte-and-bailey castle and actually served as a donjon (fortified main tower or a
keep) with service and residential rooms on five levels. It is made entirely of red bricks and
has big, pointed lancet windows and niches on the upper floor with glass windows, representing
early Gothic architecture.
The upper part of the
tower has battlements and dogtooth courses running below it.
