It is the capital city of the Brest Region.The city of Brest is a historic site of many cultures. It was the location of important historical events such as the Union of Brest and Treaty of Brest-Litovsk. The Brest Fortress was recognized by the Soviet Union as the Hero Fortress in honor of the defense of Brest Fortress in June 1941.During medieval times, the city was part of the Kingdom of Poland from 1020 until 1319 when it was taken by the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. It became part of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth in 1569. As a result of the Partitions of Poland, it was incorporated into the Russian Empire in 1795. After World War I, the city returned to Second Polish Republic. During the Invasion of Poland by Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union in 1939, the city was first captured by the Wehrmacht and soon passed on to the USSR in accordance with the German–Soviet Frontier Treaty. In 1941, it was taken again by the Germans during Operation Barbarossa. The city was part of the Belarusian SSR until the breakup of the USSR in 1991. Brest is now a part of an independent Belarus.

Etymology

Several theories attempt to explain the origin of the city's name. It may have come from the Slavic root beresta meaning "birch", or "bark". The name could also originate from the Slavic root berest meaning "elm". Or it could have come from the Lithuanian word brasta meaning "ford".Encyclopedia Lituanica. Boston, Massachusetts, Vol. I, p.409. LCC74-114275Once a center of Jewish scholarship, the city has the Yiddish name (), hence the term "Brisker" used to describe followers of the influential Soloveitchik family of rabbis. Traditionally, Belarusian-speakers called the city ().Brest became part of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania in 1319.BOOK, Auzias, Dominique, Labourdette, Jean-Paul, Brest et sa région, Biélorussie,weblink Country Guides, Petit Futé, 2010, 121, 9782746937796, [At first Russian, then Polish, Brest in 1319 was conquered by Prince Gediminas and absorbed into the grand Duchy of Lithuania.], In the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth formed in 1569 the town became known in Polish as , historically (literally: "Lithuanian Brest", in contradistinction to Brześć Kujawski). became part of the Russian Empire under the name or (, , literally "Lithuanian Brest") in the course of the Third Partition of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in 1795. After World War I, and the rebirth of Poland in 1918, the government of the Second Polish Republic renamed the city as ("Brest on the Bug") on March 20, 1923.Kancelaria Sejmu RP (2013), Dz.U. 1923 nr 39 poz. 269 ISAP Archive. Link to PDF document. After World War II the city became part of the Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic with the name simplified as Brest.Brest's coat of arms, adopted on January 26, 1991, features an arrow pointed upwards and a bow (both silver) on a sky-blue shield. An alternative coat of arms has a red shield. Sigismund II Augustus, King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania, first granted Brest a coat of arms in 1554.

History

(File:Brest Lm.jpg|thumb|left|150px|In 1019 Brest was first mentioned in chronicles as Berestye)The city was founded by the Slavs. As a town, Brest – Berestye in Kievan Rus – was first mentioned in the Primary Chronicle in 1019 when the Kievan Rus took the stronghold from the Poles. It is one of the oldest cities in Belarus.WEB,weblink Brest as a tourist destination - private Minsk tours, 20 June 2011, 13 March 2015,weblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20150318223102weblink">weblink 18 March 2015, dead, dmy-all, It was hotly contested between the Polish rulers (kings, principal dukes and dukes of Masovia) and Kievan Rus princes, laid waste by the Mongols in 1241 (see: Mongol invasion of Europe), and was not rebuilt until 1275. Later it was part of the territory of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. {{Citation needed|date=November 2012}}In 1390 Brest became the first city in the lands that now comprise Belarus to receive Magdeburg rights. Its suburbs were burned by the Teutonic Knights in 1379.In 1409 it was a meeting place of King Władysław II Jagiełło, duke Vytautas and Tatar khan under the archbishop Mikołaj Trąba initiative, to prepare for war with the Teutonic Knights. In 1410 the town mustered a cavalry company (banner) that participated in the Polish-Lithuanian victory at the battle of Grunwald. In 1419 it became a seat of the starost in the newly created Trakai Voivodeship. In 1500 it was burned again by Crimean Tatars. In 1566, following king Sigismund II Augustus decree, a new voivodeship was created - Brest Litovsk Voivodeship. After it became part of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth in 1569, it was renamed Brest-Litovsk. {{Citation needed|date=October 2012}}File:Bieraście Litoŭskaje. Берасьце Літоўскае (E. Dahlbergh, 1657) (2).jpg|thumb|Siege of Brest by E. Dahlbergh, 1657]]During the period of the union of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth and Sweden under king Sigismund III Vasa (Polish–Swedish union), diets were held there. In 1594 and 1596 it was the meeting-place of two remarkable councils of regional bishops of the Roman-Catholic Church and Eastern Orthodox Church. The 1596 council established the Uniate Church (known also as the Belarusian Greek Catholic Church in Belarus and Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church in Ukraine).In 1657, and again in 1706, the town and castle were captured by the Swedes during their invasions of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. In an attack from the other direction, on January 13, 1660 the invading Muscovite Russian army under Ivan Andreyevich Khovansky took the Brest Castle in a surprise early morning attack, the town having been captured earlier, and massacred the 1,700 defenders and their families (according to captain Rosestein, Austrian observer). On July 23, 1792 a battle was fought between the regiments of the Duchy of Lithuania defending the town and the invading Russian Imperial Army.On September 19, 1794 the area between Brest and Terespol was the scene of a victorious battle won by the invading Russian Imperial army under Suvorov over the Kościuszko Uprising army division under general Karol Sierakowski (known in Russian sources as the Battle of Brest). Brest was annexed by Russia when the Poland-Lithuania Commonwealth was partitioned for the third time in 1795 (see: Partitions of Poland). During Russian rule in the 19th century, a large fortress was built in and around the city. The Russians demolished the Polish Royal Castle and most of the Old Town "to make room" for the fortress. {{Citation needed|date=October 2012}}File:bfc Brest train station.jpg|thumb|180px|right|Brest railway station during World War IWorld War IThe town was captured by the German army in 1915, during World War I. In March 1918, in the Brest-Litovsk fortress on the western outskirts of Brest at the confluence of the Bug River and Mukhavets Rivers, the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk was signed, ending the war between Soviet Russia and the Central Powers and transferring the city and its surrounding region to the sphere of influence of the German Empire. This treaty was subsequently annulled by the treaties which ended the war and even more so by events and developments in Germany and Eastern Europe. During 1918, the city was first declared part of the short-lived Belarusian Democratic Republic, then part of the Podolia Governorate of the Ukrainian People's Republic.

The Second Polish Republic

Following the Polish–Soviet War Brest became part of the Second Polish Republic, with borders formally recognized by the Treaty of Riga of 1921. It was renamed Brześć nad Bugiem on March 20, 1923 (Brest on the Bug) in Poland, and named the capital of the Polesie Voivodeship in accordance of the pre-1795 tradition. In the twenty years of Poland's sovereignty, of the total of 36 brand new schools established in the city, there were ten public, and five private Jewish schools inaugurated, with Yiddish and Hebrew as the language of instruction. The first ever Jewish school in Brześć history opened in 1920, almost immediately after Poland's return to independence. In 1936 Jews constituted 41.3% of the Brześć population, or 21,518 citizens. Some 80.3% of private enterprises were run by Jews.Norman Davies, God's Playground (Polish edition), Second volume, p.512-513BOOK, Economic Change and the National Question in Twentieth-century Europe, Alice Teichova, Alice Teichova, Herbert Matis, Jaroslav Pátek, 2000, Cambridge University Press,weblink 978-0-521-63037-5, 342–344, weblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20100529211839weblink">Stosunki polsko-białoruskie pod okupacją sowiecką, (Polish-Byelorussian relations under the Soviet occupation).

After four days of heavy fighting the Polish forces withdrew southwards on September 17 (see: Battle of Brześć Litewski). The Soviet invasion of Poland began on the same day and as a result the Soviet Red Army entered the city at the end of September 1939 in accordance with the Ribbentrop-Molotov pact's Secret Protocol, and a joint Nazi-Soviet military parade took place on September 22, 1939. While Belarusians consider it a reunification of the Belarusian nation under one constituency (BSSR at that time), Poles consider it the date when the city was lost. During the Soviet control (1939–41) the Polish population was subject to arrests, executions and mass deportations to Siberia and the Soviet Republic of Kazakhstan.The city had an overwhelmingly Jewish population in the Russian Partition: 30,000 out of 45,000 total population according to Russian 1897 census, which fell to 21,000 out of 50,000 according to the Polish census of 1931.Joshua D.

Operation Barbarossa and after

{{further|Brest Ghetto}}On June 22, 1941, the fortress and the city were attacked by Nazi Germany on the first day of Operation Barbarossa, Germany's invasion of the Soviet Union. The Brest Fortress held out for six days. Abandoned by the Soviet army, nearly all its defenders perished. The Germans placed Brest under the administration of the Reichskommissariat Ukraine. The remaining municipal Jewish population (about 20,000) was sequestered in the Brest ghetto established by the German authorities in December 1941, which they liquidated in October 1942. Only seven Jews survived the Nazi executions. The city was liberated by the Red Army on July 28, 1944.In early 2019, a mass grave containing the remains of 1,214 people was found in the Brest Ghetto area during a construction project. Most are believed to have been Jews who were killed by the Nazis.NEWS, Liphshiz, Cnaan, February 22, 2019, Remains of Hundreds of Bodies Unearthed at Former Jewish Ghetto in Belarus,weblink The Jerusalem Post, February 28, 2019, Jewish Telegraphic Agency,weblink

Geography

Brest lies astride the Mukhavets River, that is known to Bresters as "the river". The river flows west through the city, dividing it into north and south, and meets the Bug River in the Brest Fortress. The river flows slowly and gently. You can hop into a tire innertube and take a relaxing float down this river. Today the river looks quite broad in Brest. The terrain is fairly flat around Brest. The river has an extremely broad floodplain, that is about {{convert|2|to|3|km|0|abbr=off}} across. Brest was subject to flooding in the past. One of the worst floods in recorded history occurred in 1974. {{Citation needed|date=October 2012}}A part of the floodplain was reclaimed by method of hydraulic mining. In the 1980s big cutter-suction dredgers were mining sand and clay from the riverbed, to build up the banks. After the dredging the river became deeper and the riverbanks higher. Today the river does not overflow its banks. {{Citation needed|date=November 2012}}In the 2000s, two new residential areas were developed in the southwest of Brest.To the east of Brest the Dnieper-Bug Canal was built in the mid-nineteenth century to join the river to the Pina, a tributary of the Pripyat River which in turn drains into the Dnieper River. Thus Brest has a shipping route all the way to the Black Sea. If not for a dam and neglected weirs west of Brest, north-western European shipping would be connected with the Black Sea also.

Climate

Brest has a humid continental climate, but slightly leans towards oceanic due to the irregular winter temperatures that mostly hover around the freezing point. Summers are warm and influenced by its inland position compared to areas nearer the Baltic sea.{{Weather box|location = Brest|single line = Yes|metric first = Yes|Jan record high C = 11.6|Feb record high C = 17.2|Mar record high C = 22.6|Apr record high C = 30.7|May record high C = 32.1|Jun record high C = 33.0|Jul record high C = 36.6|Aug record high C = 35.6|Sep record high C = 31.5|Oct record high C = 26.4|Nov record high C = 19.0|Dec record high C = 14.5|year record high C = 36.6|Jan high C = -0.1|Feb high C = 1.2|Mar high C = 6.3|Apr high C = 14.0|May high C = 20.1|Jun high C = 22.6|Jul high C = 24.9|Aug high C = 24.2|Sep high C = 18.4|Oct high C = 12.5|Nov high C = 5.4|Dec high C = 0.9|year high C = 12.5|Jan mean C = -2.6|Feb mean C = -1.9|Mar mean C = 2.2|Apr mean C = 8.7|May mean C = 14.5|Jun mean C = 17.1|Jul mean C = 19.3|Aug mean C = 18.5|Sep mean C = 13.3|Oct mean C = 8.3|Nov mean C = 2.7|Dec mean C = -1.3|year mean C = 8.2|Jan low C = -4.9|Feb low C = -4.5|Mar low C = -1.2|Apr low C = 3.8|May low C = 9.0|Jun low C = 12.0|Jul low C = 14.2|Aug low C = 13.3|Sep low C = 9.1|Oct low C = 4.8|Nov low C = 0.4|Dec low C = -3.5|year low C = 4.4|Jan record low C = -35.5|Feb record low C = -28.1|Mar record low C = -22.6|Apr record low C = -6.2|May record low C = -4.2|Jun record low C = 2.1|Jul record low C = 5.8|Aug record low C = 1.3|Sep record low C = -2.8|Oct record low C = -9.9|Nov record low C = -19.2|Dec record low C = -25.1|year record low C = -35.5|precipitation colour = green|Jan precipitation mm = 34|Feb precipitation mm = 33|Mar precipitation mm = 33|Apr precipitation mm = 37|May precipitation mm = 63|Jun precipitation mm = 68|Jul precipitation mm = 76|Aug precipitation mm = 72|Sep precipitation mm = 55|Oct precipitation mm = 37|Nov precipitation mm = 42|Dec precipitation mm = 41|year precipitation mm = 591|Jan humidity = 85|Feb humidity = 82|Mar humidity = 75|Apr humidity = 66|May humidity = 66|Jun humidity = 69|Jul humidity = 70|Aug humidity = 71|Sep humidity = 78|Oct humidity = 81|Nov humidity = 86|Dec humidity = 87|year humidity = 76|Jan rain days = 11|Feb rain days = 9|Mar rain days = 12|Apr rain days = 12|May rain days = 16|Jun rain days = 16|Jul rain days = 16|Aug rain days = 12|Sep rain days = 15|Oct rain days = 14|Nov rain days = 14|Dec rain days = 13|year rain days = 160|Jan snow days = 16|Feb snow days = 16|Mar snow days = 10|Apr snow days = 3|May snow days = 0.1|Jun snow days = 0|Jul snow days = 0|Aug snow days = 0|Sep snow days = 0|Oct snow days = 1|Nov snow days = 7|Dec snow days = 14|year snow days = 67|Jan sun = 49|Feb sun = 70|Mar sun = 134|Apr sun = 176|May sun = 249|Jun sun = 259|Jul sun = 263|Aug sun = 247|Sep sun = 174|Oct sun = 120|Nov sun = 47|Dec sun = 34|year sun = 1822|Jan percentsun = 19|Feb percentsun = 25|Mar percentsun = 36|Apr percentsun = 42|May percentsun = 51|Jun percentsun = 52|Jul percentsun = 52|Aug percentsun = 54|Sep percentsun = 45|Oct percentsun = 36|Nov percentsun = 18|Dec percentsun = 14|year percentsun = 41 PUBLISHER = WEATHER AND CLIMATE (Погода и климат) ACCESSDATE = 15 MAY 2015, |source 2 = Belarus Department of Hydrometeorology (sun data from 1949–1951 and 1953–2000)WEB,weblink" title="web.archive.org/web/20170426031859weblink">weblink 26 April 2017,weblink Солнечное сияние.

Points of interest

(File:Row brest.jpg|thumb|Rowing course in Brest)(File:Brest St.jpg|thumb|Brest's largest stadium)A majestic Soviet-era war memorial was constructed on the site of the 1941 battle, to commemorate the known and unknown defenders of the Brest Fortress. This war memorial is the largest tourist attraction of the city. The Berestye Archeological Museum of the old city is located on the southern island of the Hero-Fortress. It has objects and huts dating from the 11th – 13th century, that were unearthed during excavations in the 1970s. Brest is proud of its shopping mall, Sovietskaya Street. It was dramatically reconstructed in 2007–2009 to revive the initial view of the old town. In July 2009 the Millennium Monument of Brest was unveiled.The Museum of Rescued Art Treasures has a nice collection of paintings and icons. Brest also has the first Belarusian outdoor railway museum. Earlier in Brest there was a synagogue, which was regarded as the first one in Grand Duchy of Lithuania. It is also the seat of an Armenian and of a Greek Catholic bishop; the former has jurisdiction over the Armenians throughout the whole country.Brest City Park is over 100 years old, and underwent renovations from 2004 to 2006 as part of a ceremony marking the park's centennial.

Education

Brest is home to two Universities: A.S. Pushkin Brest State University and Brest State Technical University.

Transport

Being situated on the main railway line connecting Berlin and Moscow, and a transcontinental highway (the European route E30), Brest became a principal border crossing after World War II in Soviet times. Today it links the European Union and the Commonwealth of Independent States.The city of Brest is served by Brest-Tsentralny railway station. Because of the break-of-gauge at Brest, where the Russian broad gauge meets the European standard gauge, all passenger trains, coming from Poland, must have their bogies replaced here, to travel on across Belarus, and the freight must be transloaded from cars of one gauge to cars of another. Some of the land in the Brest rail yards remains contaminated as a result of the transshipment of radioactive materials here since Soviet days although cleanup operations have been taking place. {{Citation needed|date=October 2012}}The local airport, Brest Airport (code BQT), operates flights on a seasonal schedule to KaliningradNEWS, Авиасообщение между Брестом и Калининградом откроется 8 июня,weblink 4 June 2015, Interfax, Interfax.by, 4 June 2015, in the Russian Federation and seasonal charter flights to Burgas and Antalya.NEWS, Что нас манит ввысь?,weblink 21 June 2013, Vecherniy Brest, 4 June 2013,
