And finally, Minsk.

This is the village Tepluhy on the way of my train to Minsk.
Those decorations look quite ugly and cheap, to be honest
And lions are too small

If you see those well-known cargoes, it means that youre approaching quite big city.

Now Minsk. Boring commieblocks(60% of Minsk) and some pieces of old architecture

Now we're on central train station. And you can see those suburban trains "City Lines", which made in Switzerland, Belarussian Railway faces massive modernisation



Train station is large and tidy, but looks quite old-fashioned(or just too plastic), and i hardly can call it "modern"

Board should be replaced


But good idea with galleries

Amazing view to the stalin-era City Gates

Belarussian State University


Colour and material irritate me so much

Here comes the Apocalypse the Independence day. And bloody regime is so bloody that there's some kind of decoration on every single balcony


Central Bus Station


Government House.

Independence Ave



Officials think that english signs like this should be everywhere. Bloody hell.

Independence Square and surroundings consist of different old buildings and Red Catholic Church, which resisted the German Occupation during WW2

Terrible pieces of glass

But that transition looks quite good

No comments

"Capital" Shopping Centre. Which is situated -3 floors below of street level

Shame right in the centre of Minsk. City Court.(i mean there's a problem with colour. Its disappearing from the building)


Minsk is the city which was rebuilt(90% of the city was destroyed) after devastating WW2 and German occupation

Gorgeous Central-Post Office


Inside(sorry for bad quality)




Dzerzhinsky

Bizarre reflection of KGB building(yes, there's still KGB)



Can't stop laughing at this. Luch ripped off design of western watches and stores


Very first McDonalds in Belarus. Opened in 1996. Always overcrowded.

It even has historical value))))(kidding)

Old Minsk starts

October Square is unfairly immense(old buildings destroyed), and some buildings should be demolished. Especially WW2 Museum Building. There should be another one instead
Also, The Palace of Republic is the rip-off of the same palace in Kremlin.



Velcom Centre


LOL, there are no English words, except of Tourist Information




Local navigation

Historical centre is cute, in my opinion



soviet street signs


Old City Hall(rebuilt in 2003)



Europe Hotel. 5-stars. Also rebuilt

Looks like Europe, isnt it?



One more Catholic Church

French Embassy


Royal Plaza/ The tallest building in Minsk


Europe.. Oh!

Famous belarussin food shops called "Fast-Delicious-24"

Ugly, very tacky building















Saw some indian tourists


Local luxury village




Lets go back to the Ave


Went to McDonalds



BLOODY HELL


Oh, that reminds me of Moscow

And finally, post-card


Thank you for your attention

You seem to have some pictures from high up - where? Is there a tower there that tourists can visit?

Nice pictures. Keep them coming.
