  • That's exactly how I would have described the Minsk library. Chic! Been here with his wife and eldest daughter 5 years ago. Liked the manuscript museum, where the ancient manuscripts! Also, the library is very large reading rooms, and, of course, books-plenty of them there. There is also a large observation deck, where you can see the entire Minsk. The construction of modern, but very cozy and pleasant!

  • Just incredibly chic illumination. Shoot long accounted for exposure and Tripod (but there is not, then you can place the unit on a bench, which are plentiful).

  • 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 !!
