Trumpeter on the tower

Unusual Grodno

Every day at 11:58 from the fire lookout tower in the center of Grodno heard live sound of the trumpet.

The fact is that every day, dressed in an old fire shape on top of the old fire tower rises trumpeter and plays a new tune for each day of the week.

Trumpeters on fire lookout towers began to appear in the 1930s. For citizens songs from tower was a kind of warning that in the city is safe and no fire.

In Grodno in 2010 resumed a beautiful tradition.

Live performance lasts 2 minutes, because at exactly 12 noon the old clock on the Farny Church starts to beat.

Hi! This is Grodno - the first visa free City in Belarus.
