    The main church of the city is beautiful both inside and out. Beautiful painted Dome, I was always interested in Catholic churches stained-glass Windows and the organ. (A) the authority here. Read the online story of this temple. What it gave the sports community-this is a plus. It is not carried at all, he was on the balance of the Ministry of sport, i.e. the State supported and ancient temple still continues to live.

    When you see a whole string of sounds like they all look alike after a while. but it was nice to the ceiling. In addition to its central location you can visit easily and while walking on the road.

    Made with the Baroque architectural features. It's a very old building but has been repaired the restoration of the year 1997. It's beautiful, but too old for composers spent fire is gone.

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.
