The unrestricted view of Minsk and beyond was charming in the snow. The patterns made on the snow by human activity presented an eye catching spectacle. I'd have given it 5 stars, had there been some arrangements for coffee and other hot drinks as well.

came here to relax and enjoy the view, such a shame it was a dreary day and raining which made the view a bit blurry. The bad weather did not stop my enjoyment. Lots of refreshments and tasty snacks on offer here.

You need to go there with someone who know Minsk and is able to tell you something about the city while you look thru the all glass elevator and later from the view point at the top of the building. It's a good place to...More

You love or hate this building. I loved it. And I found the statue outside of the man who translated the bible into the local language interesting as well.

One of the cheapest ways to look at the city from above. There is a separate lift, entry is at the back side of the building, and there are ticket windows. The lift walls are transparent so you will see a beautiful panorama. From the...More
