16 Jun 2020

The famous Museum of Vetka, the Belarusian center of old rites, is based on a personal collection of local artist and collector Fyodor Shklyarov. Belarusian Old Believers left a rich heritage behind them, including unique icons and manuscripts with miniatures and ornaments. The museum features over 10,000 exhibits about the history and culture of the old Orthodox village. The museum holds one of Belarus’ biggest collections of black-letter and script books, among which is Anfologion, the first Kievan book published in 1619.
