As the capital and largest city of Belarus, Minsk represents a cultural center full of churches, libraries, museums, and theatres.
Explore Minsk's surroundings by going to Corpus Christi Church in Nesvizh (in Nesvizh), The Historical and Cultural Complex Stalin Line (in Loshany) and Mir Castle (in Mir). There's still lots to do: get lost in a book at National Library of Belarus, don't miss a visit to Victory Square, get engrossed in the history at Belarusian State Museum of the History of the Great Patriotic War, and appreciate the history behind Monument to Fallen Jewish People on March 2, 1942.
