"St. Martin's Goose" is an agro-tourist farmstead of Lyudmila and

Alexander Bely. Old wooden house in Lucynka village has been purchased

by Bely family in 2005 from the descendants of the gentry family that

lived here for about 200 years and whose fortune has been destroyed by

the Soviet repressions in 1940s-1950s. Last three years (2005-2008) it

is being carefully reconstructed, to be turned into the typical sample

of the small gentry manor of the Belarusian North-West (former Vilnius

palatinate), commemorating the unique heritage of the Naliboki wild

forest with its traditional arts and crafts (hunting, fishing, bog ore

metallurgy, glass-work, wood chemistry (tar, potash), ceramics, home

brewing etc.) and the traditions of the local cuisine. Also, in the

absence of the proper memorial museum of V. Dunin-Marcinkiewicz,

re-founder of the new Belarusian literature in XIX century, the

farmstead will, to some extent, play the role of the writer's

memorial. (Whose house was located just 400 m from the "St. Martin's

Goose")

 

Naliboki wild forest and surroundings (to which Lucynka is a kind of

"symbolic gate") is one of the few regions of Belarus which to some

extent has preserved certain features of pre-Soviet and pre-Russian

("Latin Slavonic") culture, and is sometimes called "Slavonic

Lithuania". This regional identity, complementary to the "standard"

Belarusian culture, shall be emphasized in the long-term campaign for

the creation of recognizable tourist image of the region, particularly

in the planned mini festivals schedule, including menu structure and

folk performance program.

 

  Also, Lucynka is a key place for the reconstruction of the

traditional cuisine of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and the revival

the lifestyle of the gentry of Eastern Lithuania of the 19th centur.

Alexander Bely, PhD, a historian, is a key promoter of the revival of

the traditional cuisine of Lithuania and Belarus, and an author of

several books on the subject, notably - The Belarusian Cookbook

published in the USA.
