Explore Minsk highlights even if your time is limited on a half-day tour that combines guided walks with private car transport. With stops at the Minsk Gates, Independence Square, Upper City, Victory Square, and more, you’ll get a great orientation to the city’s key sites. Walking alongside a personal guide means the chance to learn about local culture and history along the way.

We walked on the upper side of Minsk, and bumped into this beautiful Church. The green top gives it all of its character and is very charming.

The Holy Spirit Cathedral is the main Orthodox Church in Minsk, set in the center of the Upper town (old town). It dates back to 17c, and survived fires, WWII demolishing and Stalin's dictatorship. The renovated exterior is pretty simple, rather a whitewashed twin belfries facade with green roofs, yet nice. Don't judge with that but go inside - the interior is very nice, decorated with great frescoes and artwork.

This is another cathedral that has risen from the destruction of WW 2 and survived the Russian communists ban on worship. We did not go inside, as a service was in progress. It shows that surpessing religions only makes faith stronger.

Probably the main church of the city. Interesting and super central. One of the best memories I will keep from this place. Entrance is for free, just try not to disturb those who are praying!
