There are many famous people in our republic.Among them you can find the names of politicians andpublic figures, intellectuals and scientists, heroesof war and labour, sportsmen and artists.
First of all I'd like to mention the name ofour outstanding national writers Yanka Kupalaand Yakub Kolas. They created a new BelarusianLiterature and a Belarusian literatury language.Both are considered to be the classics of Belorusianliterature.

Many prominent names in the history of Belarusof the 20th century are connected with the two mainevents, the Second World War and space exploration.The Belarusians fought heroically defending theirMotherland. But we are especially proud of theheroes of the last war: K.Zaslonov, E.Osipova,N.Gastello, V.Talalikhin, the defenders of BrestFortess and many others.

At the present day time, the time of revolutionof values, it's difficult to find heroes especiallyamong politicians. Time will put everything in itsplace and give everybody his due. But one thing isobvious: great times are created by great men. Theirnames are sure to become history whatever it may be.

K. Kalinovsky was born in 1838 on the 21-st of January not far from Grodno in Belarus. His parents were not rich. There were 18 children in the family. Kalinovsky's mother Veronica Rybinskaya died early and the elder brother, Victor, a student of Moscow University, took care of Kastus.

In 1864 Kastus Kalinovsky was arrested and hanged as the learder of the uprising. He fought for national independence of Byelorussian people, the development of national culture and education.

Outstang People of our Country.
I'm proud of living in Byelorussia which has always been famous for its people ── industrious, kind, hospitable and friendly.
Byelorussia has given the world many famous people in all fields of life. But I think the most outstanding figure of Byelorussia is Frantsisk Skorina. He is the founder of byelorussian and Slavonic book-printing, a scientist, a writer, a translator, a doctor of phylosophy and medicine, a humorist. He influenced the development of many branches of Byelorussian culture.
The ideas of humanism and patriotism of the Renaissance began penetrating into Belarus and it was Frantsisk Skorina who introduced them in Byelorussia.
The great son of the Byelorussian people, Frantsisk Skorina was born in the family of a merchant in Polotsk in about 1490. He got his primary education in Polotsk, and then learned phylosophy at the Krakow University. In 1517 Scorina went to Prague where he started translating and printing the Bible. He published 20 Bibles.
His genius can be compared with that Leonardo do Vinchi, Rafael, Michaeclangelo, Thomas Moor. By the UNESCO desision his name is included in the list of the most prominent scientists of Slovonic culture.
