There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Saints Simon and Helena, don't miss a visit to Victory Square, brush up on your military savvy at Belarusian State Museum of the History of the Great Patriotic War, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Archangel Mikhail.
