Part 1 | Part 2
Great and mysterious is Belarusian forest. It can never be dull, monotonous, closed from searching eyes. Each path leading deep into the woods bears you the joy of cognition and new discoveries. Step by step, you kind of get into a green temple full of wonderful life, rain-washed and sun-heated, smelling of conifers, flowers and herbs.
The forest is fine in any season. It is full of bright joy of awakening and triumphant sounds of birds' voices in spring, permeated with rustle of green leaves and fragrance of ripe berries in summer, enveloped in crimson colours and mushroom fogs in autumn, painted with snow tracery and tracks of wild beasts in winter.
So let us visit the forest as we visit our friend, with pure thoughts and open-hearted, walk along familiar and remote forest paths, find a hiding place, listen to, watch and rejoice at the encounter with a wary beast, touch secrets of the living beauty.
