The first mobile exhibition project was presented by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) January 19. Historians gathered archival materials and footage of modern photographers. Thanks to this exhibition you can learn the history of Belarus since the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth to the present time. The project is planned to see abroad. The exhibition reflects, among other things, the history of Mir and Nesvizh Castles and the spills of Pripyat River. The Belarusian exhibition project also features pictures of the Chernobyl disaster and Armenia after the earthquakes. The photographer Sergei Plytkevich did reports from a lot of hot spots. Perhaps that is why the Belarusian peaceful sights look very touching and valuable.
