  • Every time I arrive in Minsk, be sure the whole family to visit the Cathedral of Vilna style was Baroque. Very nice! Really resting soul.

  • This is a nice island which was covered in snow so the bridge used to access it was a bit slippery. The monument is very attractive  more »
  • A very nice place. I'm not really a believer, a man could feel this place. Lived next to the Cathedral and in the evening come to listen to the organ music. Yes, this Cathedral, unlike the rest of the city, not visible light from all sides, and hid among houses, but as for me-it's the best place in town
