Authentic Belarus

These photos were taken in different parts of my country. I deliberately did not sign them. You can just look at them and admire the authentic Belarus. This is my culture, it would always be in my heart!

    1. №6. Embroidered blouses edge (instead of the collar)
      №7. This is the celebration of Kalyada. In winter, on January 6, all Belarusians celebrate the ancient pagan festival of the god Kalyada. Adults and children walking the streets, houses, they singing songs and asking the owners bread, meat, sweets (like on Halloween). The goat is a symbol of Kalyada.

  4. A beautiful place to get married. I went to my friend's wedding here this past weekend. This place for Las Vegas Weddings is beautiful, one of the nicest locations for a wedding I've ever been. The ceremony was very nice and felt very intimate.
