  • A wonderful, atmospheric, cozy and very beautiful place in the center of Belarusian capital. There are a lot of little courtyards with Cafe inside, cozy shops, including great souvenirs. Houses are beautiful and touching, and some of them still live in Minsk. Want to walk for a long time on these yard and stairs, sit on benches or on the summer terrace Cafe, enjoy the beauty and silence. Here you must come, and better not once!

  • The suburb itself is not very impressed, look there especially nothing reminded cottages new Russians. Souvenir shops are closed too early. But here's a stroll near the promenade, especially in hot weather, is a pleasure. And eat in a restaurant overlooking the water, beauty. There are several hypotheses as to the origin of the toponym "Troitskaya Gora. According to the most probable, the toponym derives from the name of the ancient Catholic Church in Minsk, founded by Grand Duke of Lithuania and the Polish King Jagiello. According to another version, the name originated from the name of the defensive redoubt of the Holy Trinity, which was located near Borisov outposts. There is also an opinion that the name went from the Church of the Holy Trinity, or Holy Trinity convent

  • We were with family in the Trinity suburb in January 2017 (the most creepy Santas) and with a daughter in August 2017 (very hot weather)-did not disappoint! On the contrary, in any weather is charmingly Suburbs! Visit the exhibitions, which are held on the territory of the Museum located in the former synagogue. Very nice staff! The exhibition was about insects and spiders. Impressed! While daughter drew, I was a movie about spiders! Dine in the restaurant, just walk. This place attracts. Definitely will go there again! And, of course, Craft Gallery-without gift doesn't go away!

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.
