The Moscow International Book Fair has opened in the Russian capital. Over 300 publishing houses from 25 countries are taking part in the fair. The Belarusian pavilion uses the Year of Native Land theme. Visitors can find out the secrets of the ornament in Belarusian national clothes, read Kupala and other Belarusian writers in languages of all peoples of Russia and see the beauty of the Belarusian nature - from lakes to medieval castles. A joint Belarusian-Russian project on the history of the national flags, emblems and hymns of the two countries has been prepared for young readers.
