Victory Square, Minsk

4.4
Victory Square is a genuine Soviet-era square. See the 38 m (124 ft) high granite monument dedicated to the millions who died in the Great Patriotic War--World War II. Watch for the red star and the old Soviet coat of arms on its top, and pay attention to the sculpture of Lenin on the side of the monument. The face of Stalin, which used to be there, was converted into Lenin's ear. An eternal flame flickers at the base of the obelisk, making it a popular spot for photographs. You can discover more about the square and its role in Belarusian history in the museum under the square. The main entrance to famous Gorky Park is also on this square.

    Beautiful and impressive square. It is essential to seeing it at night. Impacts more. You can access the central area by the passage under the level of the plaza.

    Very beautiful and memorable place. All looks very organically. The area is very spacious. Should please everyone, but fans of Soviet architecture more so

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.
