  • Not entered in it, so I don't know what is inside. Looks really funny, so how he smack between the houses. Visiting the upper city you will not miss the Cathedral! It is located across the street from the old town hall

  • In the upper city of Minsk is concentrated the largest number of attractions. One of them is the Catholic Cathedral, the Cathedral of the holy name of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is located directly opposite (across the street) City Hall not far from the Orthodox Cathedral of the Holy Spirit. He clearly loses the sense of originality and monumentality amazing Church of St. Simeon and St. Helen on the Plaza square. However, it is worthy of attention, and the inside is quite beautiful and bright.

  • Externally, the Cathedral is completely normal and unremarkable, but the inside is very beautiful! Honestly the first time I see otbelku Cathedral in Pink for me was unusual. We were in the car and Navigator led us into the courtyard and it happened that we went with black to move. What a nice happy, no we are not expelled, but rather carried out inside. Try us in Moscow have so the temple visit.
