Today we toured Bialystok. We went to the military museum. We saw a the town palace which has been rebuilt because it was destroyed in the war. The only thing that remained was the staircase which is still part of the palace. The original palace was built in the 18th century by Jan Klemens Branichi. Bialystok means white slope. It was settled about 1450. We saw the Cytron palace which was a house owned by a Jewish textile owner before the war. We also walked the the oldest part of Bialystok which was built int the 19th century. We went to an Orthodox church which was very ornate. We also went to the white church which is octagonal in design. We ended the tour at Bialystok University.
