Upon addressing the opening ceremony of the event, Belarusian Ambassador to Vietnam Vladimir Borovikov stated the photos would provide an insight into Belarus’s history, its rich culture, beautiful landscapes, and hospitable people.

The exhibition represents one of the cultural exchange activities being held by the two countries in order to help strengthen the friendship between Vietnam and Belarus, he added.

On display as part of the occasion are 18 large-sized photos which showcase sightseeing spots in Belarus, including Belovezhskaya Pushcha National Park and the Mir Castle Complex, both of which have been officially recognised as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

The event is scheduled to last through to November 21 and is being held at the National Library of Vietnam at 31 Trang Thi Street in Hanoi.
