Belarusian Written Language Day inspires development of spiritual centers like Polotsk

POLOTSK, 4 April (BelTA) – Belarusian Written Language Day gives a new impulse to the development of spiritual centers like Polotsk, BelTA learned from Belarusian Information Minister Lilia Ananich, who chaired a session of the working group in charge of preparing the celebrations in Polotsk on 4 April.

Lilia Ananich noted: “Polotsk is a sacred city for us, the cradle of Belarusian statehood. It deserves the closest kind of attention. Such cities, which act as the centers of our spirituality, history, and culture, acquire a new development impulse during celebrations and anniversary events.”

Many of the questions were related to the celebration of Belarusian Written Language Day, the 500th anniversary of book printing in Belarus, and the 1155th anniversary since Polotsk’s foundation. “The personal involvement in preparing Polotsk for anniversaries and celebrations, people’s attention to the native city, and their desire to see it more beautiful are very important,” stressed Lilia Ananich.

A lot of events will take place in the center of the city. We expect a new memorial sign ‘Polotsk — the cradle of Belarusian statehood’ to be unveiled. The national contest of young reciters Live Classics will acquire a new status in Polotsk this year. Tryouts are already in progress in schools. They will be followed by elimination rounds in districts and then in oblasts. Children from all over the country will travel to Polotsk to read classic Belarusian literature works aloud,” said Lilia Ananich.
