About the tour

Independence Square is one of the biggest squares in Europe. This area is not only the landmark of Minsk but also incredibly beautiful and convenient for walking and relaxing. It is of great interest to tourists because it has many key attractions. The most significant is the monument to Lenin in front of the House of Government and the Red Church. Nowadays it is the political, educational centre of Minsk with the underground shopping centre.

Belarus was my last cancelled trip before Covid-19 restrictions. This was na excellent tour that made me even more eager to visit the country. Tanya did a great job. She walked us around the huge square, surrounded by impressive communist style buildings, along the way sharing stories about the city and her country. It's a pity that not to many guests joined the tour, but I'm shore that in the future she will have more guests on her tours. Поздрав од Македонија.
