World-famous people of Belarusian origin
Tuesday, 18 March 2014 14:41
famous people from belarus

Somehow there are not so many world-famous people here in Belarus. Our singers or, say, actors are not so widely known on the world stages. Unfortunately, not much is known about our scientists, journalists or politicians as well. They may be famous within the country but not well heard of abroad.

The exception here is, probably, our sportsmen who after the Winter Olympics in Sochi helped other nations learn something about our country. Now they are world-famous. The thing is that there are lots of Belarusian emigrants or people with Belarusian roots who are now extremely popular not only on the world artistic stage but also on the political and scientific ones. They had to immigrate for various reasons: the World War 1, the World War 2 (many people immigrated to the USA during these times, especially the ones of Jewish origin), religious or money matters and so on. And you may not even know they are from our country. So we have prepared a list of such names for you. Get ready. You are sure to be surprised.

amazing hotels

It is a common knowledge, that an average tourist doesn’t expect something out-of-the ordinary from his or her hotel. A satisfactory level of comfort, good service quality and welcoming stuff would do.

But what should a sophisticated traveler who is fed up with this commonness do? And by the way, as a result of the globalization and the development of international tourism we want more and more these days. We need some entertainment that will help us survive the drudgery of our working days.

Well, modern hotels offer enough attractions to satisfy our lust. We can be attracted by an unusual range of services and features offered by hotels, or their extraordinary design and surroundings. One may be smitten by the architecture of this or that hotel and the other may appreciate a personal approach to the client. All in all, each can find something according to their own preferences.

Nemiga street: history and modern Minsk
Tuesday, 25 February 2014 11:45
nemiga

Nemiga street is not only one of the oldest streets in Minsk but also one of the most famous and beloved places in the city. Here contemporaneity harmoniously coexists with the old times. One can’t but adore restored parts of the beautiful Old city which is situated on Maksima Bogdanovicha Street nearby modern establishments of Nemiga Street which is always sprawling with people.

Aren’t you curious where the street takes its name from? Well, there used to flow a river with the same name here. And the street was founded right in the place where the river flew into another river named the Svisloch. Now the Nemiga is hidden in some water-pipes which run below the street so as to prevent it from floods which were quite common here earlier and which occasionally take place even now. It is an interesting and rather well-known fact that the history of our capital begins from the time when the Nemiga or rather the battle at the Nemiga was first mentioned in the chronicles.
