Impressions from Belarus

From April 12 through 19, 2015, I visited Belarus. My host was Belarusian State University in Minsk, where I had numerous conversations with colleagues and students. The article confers general impressions of the city of Minsk and its architecture, as well as from several museums and the National Library. Cultural influences in prehistoric and historic times are dealt with, and some linguistic observations are made. The concept of the Great Patriotic War is discussed, departing from a visit to the homonymous museum, and conversations with students. The article also confers impressions from a visit to the historic town of Grodno near the borders of Lithuania and Poland, where, among other sites, a visit was paid to the old Bridgettine convent. In the final part of the article, the border separating Belarus from its Schengen neighbours is discussed.
