Pilgrimage to Budslav acquires status of Belarus' historical and cultural value

Pilgrimage to Budslav has received a new status. Now this festival is recognized as a historical and cultural value of Belarus. The tradition of visiting the Mother of God of Budslav dates back to 1990. 

In 2015, more than 3 thousand people took part in the pilgrimage to Budslav.

It is believed that going on a journey each pilgrim defines for himself or herself a goal and a request that they think about during the entire way. The route of some believers lasts more than 2 weeks. 

In 2016, the festival coincided with the 25th anniversary of the restoration of the structures of the Catholic Church in Belarus.
