The edition has been prepared by the Petit Fute Publishing House, with several thousand copies released in French, targeting exclusively French speaking readers.
Belarus is presented in the guide book as an interesting destination, as yet unstudied and untouched by tourists, making it even more attractive. “The French authors have especially noted our rich Belarusian nature, our friendly and hospitable people and the diversity of our culture,” notes Valery Boldyrev, the Head of the National Tourism Agency’s Department for Marketing and Publishing Activity. “They believe that all these should be seen with one’s own eyes on visiting Belarus.”
The edition describes the most interesting sights countrywide, providing plenty of practical information. It also has a small dictionary and bright photos, which should attract the attention of French tourists.
