Minsk travel guide by 2014 IIHF World Championship

MINSK, 5 February (BelTA) – The Pachatkovaya Shkola publishing house will publish the travel guide “Minsk – Capital City of Belarus” in the first quarter of 2014, director and editor-in-chief of the publishing house Natalia Vanina said during the presentation of the Welcome to Belarus travel guide at the 21st Minsk International Book Fair, BelTA has learnt.

“The guide is designed for the guests of the 2014 IIHF World Championship. The book will contain the information about the landmarks of Minsk, addresses of hotels, restaurants, and ATMs. We tried to design the guide in the European style. It is compact, inexpensive, and with the maximum of useful information possible. We hope it will help make a trip to Belarus memorable and comfortable,” Natalia Vanina said.

The Welcome to Belarus travel guide came out in February 2013. The tourist route suggested by the authors will help tourists get acquainted with the history and culture of Belarus, see famous landmarks, and visit museum expositions. The guide contains many photos that create a well-rounded image of the country with its temples, castles, and palaces. The guide also provides useful information about museums, hotels, restaurants, ATMs, and filling stations. So it will help tourists get acquainted with the city and have a wonderful time.

According to the editor, the travel guide has become very popular with the guests of Belarus, especially with visitors from Russia. This is why the Pachatkovaya Shkola publishing house decided to publish its updated version. “The previous English version of the guide had only the most important information: addresses of museums, restaurants, hotels, ATMs, and filling stations. We decided that the updated version will include the descriptions of cities, towns and their landmarks in English,” Natalia Vanina said.

At the fair the Pachatkovaya Shkola publishing house also presented the book of imaginative literature Mother Land. It contains the photos by Armen Sardarov accompanied by poems by Naum Galperovich. The authors poetized the nature of Belarus and showed that the love for nature remains one of the main topics of Belarusian photo art and literature. “Nature is the main treasure of Belarus. The photos by Armen Sardarov together with the poems by Galperovich draw attention to the things that we usually do not notice in our daily routine and remind us to preserve our treasure,” illustrator Vladimir Sholk said about the book.
