We're happy to welcome you in Minsk – the capital of the Republic of Belarus, its political and cultural centre.
Minsk has a long history of battles, intrigue and royal romances. With the European and Soviet background nowadays it’s a meeting point for West and East – situated right in the heart of Belarus. Minsk carries its history with itself and that’s why it’s so diverse: from the old Upper Town of XVII century to the Stalinist grandiose planning and the clean minimal architecture of today. Minsk is a modern city with an atmosphere of a small European town where you can get away from it all in numerous parks and alleys.
Sightseeing tour of Minsk includes the main avenues (Independence avenue, Victory avenue) and the architectural monuments of the XVIIth - XXth centuries (the Upper Town with the City Hall, Holy Spirit Cathedral and the Cathedral of Saint Virgin Mary, old streets of the Trinity Suburb). The Victory Monument and the National Library (included into the list of the most outstanding buildings of the world) are waiting to be explored.
