  • I was lucky to be in town on the day of Independence, the nation's most important holiday and the first place I was in was this square, which is the seat of power. Visually, a huge open space of concrete, but surrounded by towering buildings.

  • Oktyabrskaya, which means revolution. Beautiful house with adjacent Stalinist architecture of the store, where you can go to the other side of the Avenue to the Alexander square and the House of officers, and it is possible to descend into the subway. On such a large central square of course stand palaces, fountains and flags work.

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.
