Greetings to participants and guests of Zov Polesya festival

    Dear friends,

    I am greeting the participants of the international festival of ethnic and cultural traditions Zov Polesya.

    It is symbolic that in the Year of Hospitality the festival has got an international status and opened its doors for all the guests of the agro-town of Lyaskovichi, the heart of the Belarusian Polesye.

    Polesye land is a unique place, a treasury of ancient rites, crafts and folklore, with its hardworking, sincere residents known for their great sense of humor.

    The festival Zov Polesya helps us understand our role in the modern world culture, unite the efforts in studying and preserving this invaluable historical legacy.

    I hope the festival will become not only a truly cultural event but will also promote the social and economic strengthening of the region and the development of agro-ecotourism.

    I wish you strong health, happiness, inexhaustible vital power and every success in the revival and preservation of ethnic and cultural traditions.

    Aleksandr Lukashenko
