Marc Chagall Fund to open in Vitebsk. The fund will be founded with the help of the Vitebsk oblast executive committee and the Union of the Belarusian and European Civil Organizations and Communities. The major goal of setting up the fund is to perpetuate the memory of the outstanding artist in Vitebsk, his motherland.

According to Alexander Kosinets, the authorities have been negotiating with Marc Chagall’s heirs on a possible exposition of the artist’s original works.

Vitebsk has been implementing a range of projects aimed at the development of the tourist and entertainment infrastructure. New rest areas have opened at the Vitba River. The cultural and entertainment part of the Victory Square has been refurbished. All the abovementioned gave a boost to the development of the tourist and excursion services. In 2009 the volume of paid tourist and excursion services went up by Br2.7 billion as against last year to reach Br10.2 billion.
