The capital city of Belarus has a modern and progressive appearance: Minsk has continued to develop itself for years and now offers art galleries, hip cafés and well-attended nightclubs in many places. Following the destruction of many historical sights during World War II the city was reconstructed in neatly arranged districts and idyllic green spaces that form its current decentralised cityscape.

The spacious Gorky Park offers additional attractions such as an indoor ice rink and a big wheel. Some of the old buildings in Minsk's historic city centre remained intact, one of them being the Orthodox Cathedral of the Holy Spirit. The centre of Minsk is its impressive Independence Square, which houses a popular shopping centre under its surface. The oldest structure in the square is the Church of Saints Simon and Helena, also known as the Red Church due to its impressive brick façade.
