Volozhin is the first district in Belarus to commit to an ambitious objective of becoming accessible to all categories of tourists, including those with disabilities.
Thanks to the project, persons with loss of vision and/or hearing, physical or mental disabilities now experience less inconvenience while travelling around the Volozhin district, whereas local residents and tourists now have better understanding of what inclusion is and why it is important to involve people with disabilities in active social life.
