  • In Soviet times the building was redone under the sports establishment, were demolished towers added overlapping mezhdk floors. Therefore, it is very impressive that the building was returned to its historic appearance. Very recommend to visit this particular Cathedral during the Christmas mass, when the cathedral becomes maximally solemn and colorful appearance.

Where to stay in Minsk

The funky town of Minsk is flooded with cool hotels and chic apartments to rent, many of which can be quite luxurious. Renting an apartment is a great option--and if you are traveling with a group, you can keep the cost per person down. While bed and breakfasts and guesthouses are not quite as popular in this city, you can find affordable lodging at the nice but less expensive hotels that may sacrifice location or amenities. Most hotels and hostels will arrange to register you as a foreigner with the police. If you rent an apartment-style accommodation, make sure to check in advance whether or not your host will do so. Without registration, you can stay in Belarus for only five business days.
