The Symphony of Centuries

In 2017 before the 500th anniversary of Belarusian printing a decision was made to tell in the next edition of the project about the ancient Polotsk land, motherland of our first printer Francysk Skaryna and about more than 1000-year history of the Dvina region. 

The album-book “The Symphony of Centuries” was presented at the ceremony of opening a new office building of Vitebsk branch of the Development Bank. Like classical musical symphony the book includes four parts-sections: a poetic introduction "Water of Life..."; "To the origins" reveals the richness of our heritage, preserved on our land and in the expositions of numerous museums; "Music in stone" is a part dedicated to stone architecture, in which picturesque photos, documentary sketches, and drawings illustrate and supplement the texts. The final part "Cultural values" talks about the unique artistic heritage of the 19th-20th centuries, during which well-known artists worked, who founded the famous art school, whose followers and successors are our talented contemporaries.
