    Attraction Georgievsk church in Bobrujsk (visual inspection)
    One of the most interesting objects left on the territory of the fortress is St. George's Church. With a high degree of probability it can be argued that this temple was visited during the visit to Bobruisk in 1916 by Tsar Nicholas II. In 1928, the church follows the fate of most of the churches on the territory of the USSR: the domes are dumped, the bell tower is destroyed, and the garment production is located in the disfigured building. During the war in the temple there were German auto repair shops, and at its end - a canteen and a library. For almost 70 years the temple was in this terrible captivity, and in 1990 the temple building is returned to the believers.
