Overview
More
My private Minsk city tour covers the main city sights. We shall start with a walk along Independence Square, the main square in the country and hear the story about the present-day Belarus. A short drive will bring us to the Railway Station Square and then - to the second walking venue - the Old Town that has retained the atmosphere of the past. The architectural future of Minsk can be seen during a ride along Pobeditelei (Winners') Avenue - the next part of my Minsk city tour - followed by a walk in the Trinity Suburb and the Island of Tears. A few moments later we will drive along Independence Avenue and see Victory Square where the house that accommodated Mr. Lee Harvey Oswald ('60-62) still exists. At the end of the tour we will reach the famous Minsk Library and will take a short trip to the observation pad on top of it. The tour is a combination of walking and driving that takes a total time of about 3 hours (starting and ending at the specified location).
