The exhibition is intended to present Belovezhskaya Pushcha as a special place, which, while maintaining its characteristic features, belongs to several states. This is an ecoregion conventionally called the “Sarmatian mixed forest”, through which the border between Poland and Belarus currently passes. However, the border does not divide the ecosystem itself.
Belovezhskaya Pushcha is the only part of our continent where a pristine, relict forest has been preserved, which once covered most of the territory of Europe. Unique plants and animals existed and are still present in this place.
The exhibition will tell a story about cultural history, which is unique, like the ecosystem of Belovezhskaya Pushcha. Borders have changed over time, but customs specific to this region still exist.
In the culture of Poland and Belarus there were many common events, concepts, phenomena and symbols, heroes... I want to show that our cultural heritage and its current potential have the power to overcome borders without breaking them.
