Belarusian Ridge

The Belarusian Ridge (Белорусская гряда, Belaruskaya Gryada) is a line of terminal moraines. This ridge, consisting of low, rolling hills, runs for about 500 km west from the area of the Brest region, which is close to the border of Poland to the Russian town of Smolensk.

The ridge itself is divided in sections called "uplands." These uplands are created by various river valleys that cut through the entire ridge. The ten uplands are (in sequence of west to east):

The highest elevation of the ridge is the Lysaya Hill ("Bald Hill"), 365m.
