This is a short stop for a few photos. It does have quite a few USSR details though if you wish to look more closely.

Is something cannot be missed as it is just opposite to Minsk Central Station. The gates of Minsk are very striking with tall towers. Two identical buildings that form a kind of gateway to the rest of the city.

This is where the main train station of the City of Minsk is located. It is within the south west corner of the city and it is within walking distance to Independence Square.

These buildings are very impressive from a distance and are a good indicator of the centre of the city. Up close they are just like other buildings

Minsk Gates were conceived by Josef Stalin, and serve as the symbolic gateway to the city, although American burger chains and eateries have flooded the ground floors now in a sort of ironic turn of history. Notice the lifesize statues of the peasant, worker, soldier...More

Very nice the Gates of Minsk, with beautiful architecture, opposite to the train station which is a modern building and close to some universities. A must see for Minsk.
