The Belarusan capital was completely reconstructed after World War II, starting with the Red Church (also known as the Sts. Simon and Helena Church), which is a symbol of the city. Since its construction in 1910, the building has changed hands and purpose many times and serves as a great point to learn a bit about the city’s history. A walk along the Nezavisimosti Avenue, from the Red Church all the way to the Pobedy (Victory) Square will take you along many of the city’s main landmarks, including the Government House, City Council, the official KGB Headquarters, the Palace of the Republic, the House of Officers, and the Residence of the President, and is a great way to get an overview of the city. Once you’ve done that, make sure to pay a visit to the affluent neighborhood in the Upper Town, where the Minsk City Hall and the Cathedrals of the Holy Spirit and the Holy Name of Mary are located. Be sure to try to catch an opera at the Bolshoi Opera or a ballet performance at the splendid Ballet Theater of Belarus. Minsk also has some great parks, such as the Kupala Park and the Loshitsa Park, both of which are on the banks of the River Svislotch and are ideal for a picturesque stroll.
