Berestovitsa District keeps a lot of monuments of cultural and historical heritage which are admired by tourists. It is a land of churches (mainly Roman Catholic) -practically every village here has a church of its own.
In the center of Bolshaya Berestovitsa there is the Church of the Visitation of Virgin Maria (1615, the construction was sponsored by Jeronim Khodkevich). The church has much in common with the Church of St Peter and Paul in Krakow, because it was designed by the same architect. At some period of its history the church hosted a religious school and a hospital. Currently local residents look forward to restore it.
Other attractions of Bolshaya Berestovitsa include the Assumption Church (1741), the Holy Transformation Cathedral (1912, neo-gothic style). In addition, there is a former motel (10, Krasnoarmeyskaya St.), which was built in the first half of the 19th century.
In 2012 there opened a museum of the squirrel, which is the symbol of Bolshaya Berestovitsa. The museum tells the 500-year-long story of the town, its famous residents, unique archeological and historical findings. Two rooms of the museum are fully dedicated to the squirrel.
