Photographer's Note

The last place I was in my last trip was the railway station in Brest.
Brest is a city at the border with Poland opposite the Polish city of Terespol, where the Bug River and Mukhavets rivers meet.

The city of Brest is a historic site of many cultures.
The city, during medieval times, was part of the Kingdom of Poland from the tenth century until 1319 when it was taken by Grand Duchy of Lithuania until the Polish Partitions, when it became part of the Russian Empire in 1795. After World War I, the city again returned to sovereign Poland. During World War II the city was first taken by the Soviets and in 1941 by the Nazis. After the war, with the new boundaries of the Soviet Union with Poland, the city became part of the Soviet BSSR until the breakup of the country in 1991, placing the city in the custody of Belarus, where it remains today.

I haven't seen the town, I just wanted to go to Terespol in Poland. it is quite near but is impossible to go by foot. The best way is to go by train. The station is quite big, with many platforms. The platform to Terespol is separated because there is border crossing there.
I liked this monument here. On the sign (in Russian) you can see the distances: Minsk - 345, Warsaw - 217, Moscow - 1095, paris 1664 and St. Peterburg - 1209.
From Terespol I had the ordinary trains with two interchanges.


I have just read about the attack in Nice. My condolence for our French friends.
