The Tsmok Statue at Lake Lepel, Belarus – Aquatic Dragon, Flippered Water-Deer, or Long-Necked Seal?
Posted by: Karl Shuker on September 16th, 2015
On 8 August 2015, the city of Lepel in Belarus’s Vitebsk Province hosted an international festival of mythology entitled ‘On a Visit to Lepel Tsmok’ . Among the varied array of subjects featured in this festival’s talks and presentations was Lepel’s very own legendary monster, one that was once virtually unknown to the outside world. Thanks to a wonderful statue here, however, all that is now changing, rapidly.
