500 years of Belarusian book!

August 6, 1517 in Prague Francysk Skaryna printed the first book in the Belarusian language. It was the Bible. This book was the first in the Eastern Slavs. It appeared 50 years earlier than the Russian "Apostle".

Francysk Skaryna for the first time in the history of the Slavs introduced paragraphs and indents. He refused to shorten words. A summary appeared at the beginning of each section. Skaryna entered the title page and placed his portrait in the book.

Why did Skaryna publish the Bible in Prague? In Western Europe, printing is already well developed. While in Eastern Europe there was not a single publishing house. So Skaryna was forced to leave for the Czech Republic. In addition, his patron lived in the Czech Republic.

My students created a Google map with the sights of our country. I suggest you look at it. You will find on the map a variety of attractions: parks, museums, reserves, monuments of architecture, theaters and so on.

The project was created by 11-year-old children. Each child chose interesting places of our Belarus and marked them on the map with labels of a certain color. They are just starting to work with Google maps. But I think that the project turned out to be interesting.

The folk-pop duo NAVI will represent Belarus at Eurovision 2017 with their song “Historyja majho žyccia” (Story of my life). This uplifting song has Belarusian lyrics. It will mark the first time Belarus has sent a song to Eurovision with entirely Belarusian lyrics.

The song has a positive message and celebrates life and togetherness. The delightful duo sing, “The sun will sparkle in our blood/The entire beauty of your eyes”.

And despite the lyrics being in Belarusian, the song has an instantly recognisable hook that anyone can sing along with. All together now, “Hey! Hey! Hay-yay-yay-a-ho!”
