About Minsk


The capital of Belarus is informally being called a reserve of the Soviet era. No need for a time machine: you can travel to the past just walking up and down the wide spotless avenues and gazing at the old-style buildings like GUM, TSUM and the 'Moscow' cinema complex. There is no pressure in the air – the city is spacious, relaxed and remarkably green. No skyscrapers, no crowd, no rush – your taxi will never be late. So take your time to stroll the picturesque river promenades or bike around the historical Trinity Suburb, which is as cute as a button.

Minsk has more foggy days a year than London – 67 vs 45. The most foggy month is November.

A picnic in one of the city parks (and there are plenty!) is also a nice idea. Visit the traditional Komarovsky Market first to stock up on some homemade cottage cheese, and fruits from the local farmers. At night, check out the local ballet – perhaps 'Swan Lake' will be playing!

Minsk was 80% destroyed during World War II and rebuilt in the 1950s according to Stalin’s preferences.
