Tourism Brand of Rossony District

The Rossony District brand logo is composed of an artistic logo and a slogan. The emblem features a shade of green symbolizing the purity and uniqueness of forests that occupy a large part of Rossony District. Light-blue and blue colors point to the abundance of lakes, rivers and springs with healing water. Yellow is the symbol of the Sun.

The emblem features the silhouette of Landowner Glazko's Castle, a specimen of the early 20th century architecture. The castle was built in the Gothic style by architect Edmund Frik on the shore of Lake Rossono in 1900. With its versatile architecture, the castle is very unusual. Previously, it was surrounded by a large park with alleys of limes.

The architectural integrity of the castle was damaged during the October Revolution and the Great Patriotic War. Great damage was done to both the interior and exterior of the castle.

Today the castle is open to the public. It houses the Rossony Children's and Youth Art Center.
