MINSK
The capital of the republic

Rail Terminal is very massive and ugly, built in 2000

Some blocks of flats, similar to the UK or US ones

South of Minsk

Im glad that Minsk borrowed some pedestrian transition details





Historical post-box in historical centre

























ROFL-Police car










People here dont want this house to be demolished
Minsk Administration decided to do so




Minsk Metro(Underground/Subway)









Some opposition sticker





This is a station where explosion took its place on April


National Library of Belarus
Very epic building. Goverment spent tons and tons of money to build it. It was built also by taxpayers' money




















Wow, even apple store is here!





Rail Terminal

I think your opinion about both Minsk and Mogilev will be much better than my hometown

I thinks Minsk is beautiful

It's very clean city and I am surprised that they have bicycle lanes on every street/road

Interesting fact:
After WWII 95% of buildings of Minsk were destroyed, all historical centre was destroyed

and then, in 60s, historical centre was rebuilt after Khrushev's question "Where's historical centre?"

it's very weird, why didnt you notice those coloured buildings in Minsk

Most of pics here are from my hometown, all small towns look boring and similar

But what about Minsk and Mogilev once again

Unfortunately, i didnt visit Radzivills Castle, Mir Castle, Hrodna,all Western Belarus

We are all under pressure of stereotypes.
Commie-grey-ugly, slavic-girls-sex, russian-drunk-bear/balalaika/cossack/etc, Russia-North-snow-Siberia (never been there...). Belarus-Russia-commies-drunk and ugly (girls are ok).
Brasil-football-jungle-coffee (do they have roads?).
The only remedy is to try to be more open-minded and make conclusions on the basis of deep knowledge instead of deep prejudice.

+1, what can I say,
Thanks, Capitain Obvious(in a good way!)

Osipovichi is just ordinary town with few number of sights..
So, i hope you like Minsk or Mogilev(city that should have been a capital of Belarus)
