  • Unusual building. There is an observation deck (can't say how things are there, our trip was fog). I have heard that the building is included in the top-10 most ugly. But it's not such a terrible thing. Honestly, the building as a building. The entrance is decorated in the form of an open book. Completely original. Inside the beautifully.

  • Visited this creation 10/03/2018 afternoon. As can be and original. But the contents to "zero". All the food there on the recommendation, they say everything is beautiful and everyone enjoyed it. But what I liked is unclear. Any information that look interesting, inside any booth I saw. My question to that show, I have not heard a clear answer. In General, nothing clear and muddled. Time spent in vain. Bought a ticket for 1 Bel. ruble and walked on three floors. A picture gallery on the second or third floor. But such "coats", I have not seen further visited review site, is worth three Bel. the ruble also has not impressed any types and bad optics. People, everyone wants something interesting, and it and not find

  • The building is quite unusual but inside the place is very well organized. When I went there was not much for foreigners But they still had foreign newspapers.
  • The observation deck entrance is at the back side of the building. Paid some fee, climbed the lift. The deck is overlooking the city of Minsk. Very beautiful view from here. There's a cafe and rooms for art exhibition. At night, we waited to see the light spectacle. Beautiful illumination. It's worth the wait.
  • Modern building in an los city 😊 Near of metro station so easy Access.
  • This Glow-In-The-Dark Library Was Designed to Mimic a Diamond
  • It is one of the major tourist attraction in Minsk. This library has a great structure and for visitors it has an observatory deck, book museum and lots of collection of wonderful paintings and art works. It is worth a visit while staying in Minsk.
