Belarus is located between Poland and Russia. Minsk is Capital of Belarus (which is
approximately halfway between Moscow and Warsaw). Minsk is city with more than 1.5 million
of residents. It is known since 1067 but because of the numerous wars at the
territory it was destroyed many times and after the Second World War only a

half of the 20th century. There is the Troitskoe Predmestje -
the district of the reconstructed old buildings. There are several universities and
several research institutions in the communication, computer and software areas (including
