Exotica… upon hearing the word some immediately think of Amazon jungles, others see endless Sahara sands, and yet others imagine climbing in Nepal and Tibet. This book is titled "Belarusian Exotic" because, for many foreigners, the Belarusian country is, amazingly, an unknown land - and not only for foreigners. For many Belarusians the snow covered Belavezha or the endless Paless marshes are equally exotic. There is no need to go to the Artic shores or to Siberia in order to see thousands of birds, deer, or wild boars. You can see them all in Belarus. All that's needed is knowledge of places and enough patience to take good photographs. This album is made for people of Belarus who like to be surprised and amazed, and for guests to the country. There are pictures of various parts of the country, with special attention to the less civilized places - Belavezha, Pripyats, Braslau and Narach National Parks, and Byarezina Biosphere Reserve. One can find extraordinary and amazing things and creatures in any of the forests and villages.
