  • To have seen it from the taxi is enough. This applies to almost all the "sights" here.

  • The second time in Minsk and decided that we have not looked for the first time, look at this one. However, the weather has ruined everything, a downpour and a strong wind began. While they reached the entrance to the cashier, they were wet to the strings. After queuing, we went upstairs, first to the gallery, which was by the way, though heated)) very beautiful view opens in front of the gallery with glass large windows. At the site itself is interesting, but because of bad weather and cold wind, for a long time there have not passed. For a change, you can go there.

  • Beautiful building, nice view from observatory deck, lighting is awesome and they do all kind of different designs depending on seasons. Two blocks from the metro.. Highly recommended..
  • I would said nothing about place where is the library located . Because there is metro station just few hundred metres out. I wouldn't said nothing about how massive is the building . Because it's really big but looking nice ... Good luck !!
