Traveling to the edge of the virgin Belarusian nature, where thick forests grow for centuries, the clear waters of the rivers splash, rare animals live and take out their trills of the bird. And, of course, meeting with mythical characters! Since our earliest childhood, we have been making stories, trying to get to know the world and settle in it. We look, listen, fantasize - we add our thoughts as a mosaic. So the Slav myths appeared - the myths of our ancestors. They are lost deep in the dark, but there are still places and museums, where they are remembered.
