Some information about Belarus

Dear friends,

I would like to acquaint you with the country where I was born and where I grew up. The name of this country is Belarus'. It is the crossroads between the West and the East and between the North and the South. Some of you might think: oh, right, that new republic that came into being a few years ago. But let me tell you that this is not true, in fact, my country is more than a thousand years old. It can look back on a great and rich history. In the 15th century the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, the state of our ancestors, was one of the most significant in Europe...

... Today as ever, people who strive to get closer to one another, not only in Europe, but all over the world, need to know something about their neighbours. With the help of the Internet I would like to propose you the
Virtual Guide to Belarus -- a collaborative project of Belarusian scientists abroad, for which I am maintaining the following pages:
