Holy Spirit Cathedral, Minsk
(4.6/5 based on 200 reviews on the web)
At Holy Spirit Cathedral, see the miraculous icon of Theotokos, which purportedly appeared on a riverbank in 1500. The cathedral was originally erected as a part of a Bernardine monastery in the 17th century. Notice the golden-blue image of the Holy Virgin on its white front exterior, flanked by two tall bell towers. Allegedly, part of the church served as a transit prison for evicted kulaks, and the building also served as a gym and an archive.

  • One of the few surviving after the war, authentic places in town. Surrounded, as usual, monuments, museums, restaurants and pitejnymi. On weekdays from noon to four passing Town Hall and turning the street Herzen, you can eat for half-price at Staromestnom brewery.
