The three storks symbolize the city’s independence, and the domes cover an underground shopping center. As part of the square, formerly known as Lenin Square, you'll find two state universities, a luxurious hotel, the main post office, and a famous red church.

  • Minsk is a very beautiful city! on the street very good! many different transport that would reach from one end of town to another! Minsk left a very pleasant memory! bears no resemblance to Minsk in the 1970s-1980s.
