the sender writes, 'Here is a view of the most strange and unusual building in Minsk - the new National Library. There is a gallery on the 11th floor where everyone can overview the city. And the monument near it shows Francisk Skorina - the man who printed the first book in the Belarusian language. He was well-known in the Middle Ages in Europe.'
