Minsk City Tour by car normally begins with a walk in Independence Square, where grey-colored monuments of the Soviet architecture overlook the buildings dating back to the early 1900s. This square, apart from being three times as large as Red Square in Moscow, Russia, is a perfect reflection of our current way of living here in Belarus.
Minsk Old Town – today’s Freedom – will be our next destination. One of the top Minsk tourist attractions, this area today features a number of significant historic buildings. Restored and renovated churches, cathedrals and secular buildings (Minsk Town Hall among them) will help you to delve in the country’s past, with me telling you the most fascinating facts and myths.
In terms of sightseeing, Our Minsk City Tour, will then take us along Winners’ Avenue, an example of architectural past and future of the Belarusian capital to the Trinity Suburb – the restored 19th century Minsk district. Once a suburb of Minsk, the Trinity area is now a centrally-located island of the past and a scenic walking venue, particularly in summer. Time permitting you will have a few minutes to buy some Belorussian souvenirs from a local shop. The Island of Tears in Minsk is a must-see of any tour around our capital – a deeply symbolic poignant memorial to the Soviet soldiers who died overseas.
If you take this tour in the evening, we can also include a brief introduction into the Minsk nightlife – where are the best bars, clubs, restaurants and nighttime vistas are. And don’t worry about safety – Minsk is one of the safest towns in Eastern Europe, it is clean and crime is at an all-time low point nowadays.
