Walking doe the streets you get a feeling like you are in a 17th century Europe. They did a good job of refreshing this historical part of the city to keep a historic feeling too it while still allowing modern stuff to blend in. It...More

If you want to get a vivid idea about Minsk, Upper City is a must see. It is equaly beautiful during the summer and during the winter. Even if it rains, it is beautiful.

This part of the city surprised me completely - in a positive way. Nice gardens/parks, nice Soviet stile hotels and the small old town inside the huge Minsk. It is also a nice area to have dinner or go to a bar.

The historic centre of Minsk is minuscule, but it contains quite a few churches, some squares and a handful of old houses. It's so well maintained that it could be in Disneyland, so it's not very authentic. Good for a stroll.

This is the heart of the city from a tourist perspective. Wander round, visit the I side of the churches and other buildings, take in the view of the old town - and then set out to explore further. There are also a large number...More
