An exhibition "Inimitable Minsk" in celebration of City Day will be on show from September 10 in the Mobile Gallery (3rd floor, circular corridor).

The exhibition aims to show Minsk in the course of its development, to leaf through the pages of the city's history during different periods of its existence, to demonstrate the panoramas of Minsk, its attractions, dear and familiar streets and buildings, depicted by Belarusian graphic artists and photographers.

There are more than 20 thematic publications from the collection of the National Library of Belarus on display. Among them are colourful albums, popular science publications, travel booklets, postcards with landscapes, historical sites and monuments of Minsk. Significant stages of the life and achievements of the city appear from the pages of publications.

Graphics of Belarusian artists complement the book part of the exhibition: Arlen Kashkurevich, Aliaksandra Pasliadovich, Natalia and Kaciaryna Paplauskaja, Ludwig Asiecky, Siamion Herus, Aliaksandr Koshaleu, Leanid Marchanka and others. More than 20 artists depict Minsk in the techniques of lithography, woodcut, linocut, autolithography, etching and others. Old postcards, historical publications and graphic letters make it possible to remember what the capital of Belarus looked like, and they convince that its benevolent and attractive essence has remained unchanged.

The outlines of the old buildings, spacious streets of that time without modern beautification, the square where Jakub Kolas Square near the Philharmonic now is, the old house-museum of the 1st Congress of the RSDLP before the restoration, the House of Officers without a monumental marble fence around, two towers near the train station, the old train station building, the monument on Victory Square, a "cosmic" Theatre of Musical Comedy and other familiar buildings and symbols of Minsk are made by artists with warmth and respect.

You can walk the streets of the Belarusian inimitable hero city with an ancient thousand-year history until November 10, 2021. The end date of the exhibition may be changed.

The opening hours of the exhibition correspond to the library’s opening hours.
Admission is by the library card or by the Social and Cultural Centre ticket.
