30-Apr-2006 -- This confluence point was visited during our trip in Belarus. Our main targets were Brest and a beautiful place - Belovegskaja Puscha: the only place in Europe where the relic woods still have a place.

We started our trip from the Ukrainian town Shatsk, then we crossed the frontier between Ukraine and Belarus. In the middle of the day we reached the big valley, where the Ryta river is located, near the village Mykhalyn. We needed to overcome some swamps and irrigation canals to approach this point. At last we discovered the confluence point located at the bank of the Ryta river, about 1 meter from the edge of the river.
