Independence Square architect statue

by RoadBum

There is a (bronze, I believe) statue of an architect (he's looming over a church) at the north end of Independence Square. Does this fellow have a name? Thank you!

That statue called "Zodchiy", which means Architect in old Russian language... It is not any historical person :)

yeach. here is abstract achitect. if you look to his "masterpice" from different sides, you wil find - its an abstract structure from differrent times - something wooden from anchent, chirch of holy spirit - from medivial, and operahouse - from XX century. Main idea - link beetween architect generations, from anchient til now.

Travel Tips for Minsk

Gorky Park

by Alexeyko

Gorky Park - is an oldest city park in Minsk.
Delineated from one side by Svislotch river and from other side by road to the Victory monyment it remains the most popular place for visiting by families at the weekend. Gorky park is a lovely place to take a slow relaxed walk. At the summer time there are a lot of amusements for kids, and the winter time - it even have a 'Santa Post office' here.

Minsk Tip

by weecheng

Minsk is full of Stalinist realist monuments and buildings. The current president also runs the country like the old Soviet Union. Look out for the amazing remnants of the USSR - it's look travelling back on a time machine!

Nice examples of Soviet architecture around

by Raimix

Somewhere in media I have heard that Minsk is like a collection of the best soviet style architecture. I can't compare much soviet style cities together with Minsk, but I liked that kind of soviet architecture I have seen (Government Palace, Republic Palace, City Council building and so on).

Let say, Vilnius, Riga or Tallinn has examples of Soviet architecture as well, but such architecture is not so beautiful here, not so monumental and not very well preserved as in Minsk. Probably it is because Minsk has not much preserved old (non-soviet) time architecture, so soviet style buildings, especially in central part, is like objects for presenting Minsk.

Church of Saint Mary...

by lorigirl

Church of Saint Mary Magdalena, built in the 18th century, represents some of the best architecture. The church dates to 1847 – the time when standard projects came into usage for cult architecture in the north-west region. However, the Church in Minsk has signs of the transitional period. On the one hand, you can see here a tendency to the four-part composition of its share, common to the Russian-retrospective style, on the other hand, the decoration plastic arts and the main drum share show the implementation of the Classicism achievements. Together with the neigh bouring dates the Rownaapostolnaya Mariya Magdalina Church forms a picturesque ensemble. The cathedral takes an important place in the downtown building centre.

Learn your Cyrillic alphabet

by tiganeasca

Be prepared to speak a little Russian. If you don't want to do that, make sure you can read it. Unlike Moscow and St. Petersburg in Russia, you will not find many people here who speak English (or French or German). They simply don't see many tourists because Minsk (even Belarus as a whole) is not a tourist destination. This is changing a little, particularly as many Jews from the West return (as I did) to trace their roots. But the numbers are insignificant. I went to many places that a tourist would be expected to go, such as museums and better restaurants and shops selling art of different kinds. Almost without exception, no one spoke anything except Russian (which, you should realize, is actually a foreign language here, although almost everyone speaks it. There is a separate, and yes, it's different, language called Belarussian. Often, it is similar but occasionally there are completely different words.) Sometimes you will find restaurants with menus or parts of their menus, in English. But don't plan your stay around finding them. Learn some Cyrillic. You'll thank me when you return!
