Grodno headman Anthony Tizengauz once built two similar buildings in these border towns. Both are now empty. A two-storey house on Tizengauz Square in Grodno was built in 1780 according to the design of Giuseppe Sacchi. Its restoration is included in the project of cross-border cooperation at the expense of the European Union.

The interiors of the building will be designed in the style of the historical era of Anthony Tizengauz. After reconstruction, It is planned to receive foreign delegations here and present the city for investors and businessmen. A capacious conference room will appear with the possibility of sign language translation. Also a gallery will also open, where the works of not only accomplished but also novice artists will be presented. The reconstruction project also envisages a music lounge and a cafe "Sokulka" with 20 seats. Sergei Koleda, the coordinator of the project “Shlyakh Tyzengauza”, deputy chairman of the NGO “Republican Tourist and Sports Union” told about this.


The project “Shlyakh Tyzengauza” envisages the creation of a tourist route in order to promote the cultural and historical heritage of the two cities of Grodno and Sokulka, which won the cross-border cooperation program “Poland – Belarus – Ukraine”. Grodno will also have a new bike path. It will connect the city with the Anniversary Lake. The route will start near the building of JSC “Grodnozhilstroy” on Suvorov Street and, not reaching the turn to the children's recreation camp “Zorka”, will go to the right, then will go to the shore of the lake. The length of the bike path is up to 5 kilometers. There will be bike parking by the lake.

This path will be part of a large cycling route through the Bruzgi checkpoint. The new cycle route will be convenient for tourists, especially since it will be connected via the August Avto bicycle route with the international GREEN VELO.

The total cost of the project “Shlyakh Tyzengaza” is 1.1 million euros, 10 percent of this amount will be financed by the Grodno City Executive Committee.
