Just imagine: you have only one hour before your bus leaves and you want to use this time to see the city and, desirably, its main attractions. We assure you that this is possible in case of Minsk, and with this live-streamed, interactive Online Experience, it's possible from the comfort of your own home.

We will start this tour at the ultra modern Railway Station and see the City Gate belonging to the Soviet era. From here, your guide will take you to the famous Gorky Park, a public garden with interesting sculptures, and let you in on the intriguing legends associated with it. Walk down the Independence Avenue with me to the Independence Square, and see its highlights such as the Church of St. Simon and St. Helen, the City Hall which is also the biggest building in Minsk, and the statue of Lenin.  

All through our tour, the guide will tell you about the history of the capital city of Belarus as well as some interesting anecdotes.
