WELCOME TO DUDUTKI
In inviting you to visitthis seemingly unremarkable corner of Belarus with its quiet river Ptich'(which once was one of the waterways called "from the Vikings to theGreeks") and its inviting name, like a tune of a faraway fife, "Du-du-t-ki"...,we would like to give you pleasure of acquaintance with the history andculture of this land, its traditions, nature, customs and manners.
Let the smell of fresh shavings in an ancient joiner'sworkshop, the reflection of the raw clay reviving in the potter's hands,the rippling of water near the moss-covered oaks, the squeak of the milland the sound of an anvil, the taste of cottage cheese and exciting fragranceof bread, baked right before your eyes return you for a moment to the almostforgotten childhood sensations and remind that the joy of life is thatwe do not live in vain, and nothing ends when we leave this world...
Dudutki is a museum:
- of material culture where past and future are brought together;
- of technology where each exhibitis brought to life;
- of the old way of life where collections of exhibits help one perceive the general picture of commonlife;
- of handicrafts where a pieceof wood, clay, or steel are brought to life before your eyes;
- of "the gifts of nature", a museum of labour for augmenting its riches;
