Minsk - introduction

Minsk is the capital and the largest city of Belarus. The city is located in the central part of the country and lies on the slopes of Minsk Hills, along two rivers, the Svislach and the Nemiga. The city is a major industrial center and the economic hub of the country.

Minsk dates back to the 10th century and is one of Europe's oldest cities. However, it has remarkably little to show of this historic past as most of the city was reduced to rubble after World War II. In the 1950s it was rebuilt according to the Soviet model and still today, the city features wide boulevards, vast squares, grandiose block-shaped buildings and Lenin statues. There is also a small, restored quarter of Old Town.

Minsk is a safe and clean destination and whilst there, perhaps the best things to do are as the locals do, laze in a bar, hang in the park and watch people go by.
