"Look through the Centuries"

Begin with Praspiekt Niezaliezhnasci, a 15-kilometer thoroughfare that cuts the city in half. The Avenue itself is a landmark and a unique sample of the Stalin Empire style.

Plošcha Niezaliezhnasci: Lenin monument faces the main building of the Belarusian State University with its back to the Government House, on the steps of which all the key events of December 19, 2010, took place. In a good Belarus tradition the Red Church of Saints Simon and Helena, built in 1910, is just a step away from the Lenin monument.

The National Library of Belarus is the rhombicuboctahedron that has become one of the most controversial symbols of present-day Minsk. It was built quickly in the early 2000s; the entire country pitched in, sometimes on a willy-nilly basis. It has a viewpoint and Book Museum tours as tourist attractions.

Trinity Suburb (Troitskoye Predmestye) Picturesque district in the historic city center and its coziest corner. In the 15th – 19th centuries, it was craftsmen and merchants who came to live here; nowadays, Trinity Suburb houses artist studios, museums, antique and souvenir shops, coffee houses and restaurants, and art galleries. You can often find here festivals of street musicians and artists. Next to this district is the Isle of Tears Monument – a memorial dedicated to the soldiers who died in Afghanistan.
