Mood permitting, we can organize the Minsk city tour at night. In summertime the night city lighting is turned on at 22:00 local time. The best time to start is at 2100 in Minsk Old Town in Freedom Square where the original and restored buildings of Minsk Town Hall, Gostiny Dvor, the Cathedral of Holy Virgin Mary and many others can be found.
The tour of Minsk will then take you along Winners’ Avenue where old Soviet architecture gives way to the modern housing, trade and recreation complexes including Minsk Arena that will host the 2014 World Hockey Championship. After a look at Independence Square – the main square of Belarus - we will go straight to the National Library where at 2230 the panoramic lift will take us to the observation pad.
Our Minsk city tour will end with paying tribute to the heroes of the Second World war in Victory Square, not far from which there is a house where Mr. Lee Harvey Osvald, the alleged assassin of JFK, lived from 1959 till 1961. The transfer to the accommodation is provided, naturally.
Tour duration: 2.0 hours, around 50 km round way.
