Best Free Tours in Minsk
While the capital of Belarus conjures up images of a cold, grey, stoic landscape, the reality could not be further from the truth. Minsk was completely destroyed in the Second World War, so the past has been buried in the foundations of the grand Stalinist architecture that lines the streets. Join one of the Free Tours in Minsk and broaden your knowledge of the Soviet and Lukashenko periods. The best way to explore the city is to join the Essential Minsk City Tour. It is an enjoyable tour of all the key monuments and some secret places of the historical center together with a local guide who is passionate about his city. You will enjoy the opportunity to talk with a local about the real life in modern Minsk.

Things to Do in Minsk
For the young at heart, the city offers many places to let the proverbial hair down at night, notably Sweet & Sour — a reputable cocktail bar where the best drinks are kept off the menu. Minsk is also something of a shopper’s super-highway, with the Stolitsa Shopping Centre and Minskikh Maestroy, a huge outdoor souvenir market offering a range of gifts. Pick up some Soviet posters, antique coins, or whatever takes your fancy. Whilst you are in Minsk, take a day trip out to Mir Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This incredible 16th century fortification is one of the most important attractions in Belarus. Spend the day strolling through the beautiful gardens and admiring the huge artificial lake.
