    This nice structure was built in 1954. It has new classicism style. Despite the bombastic name of it, now it houses just two night clubs. For me it is one of the most beautiful building in Minsk, despite that it is not very important in history.

    It stands at the Oktyabskaja Square, this place is quite popular among Minsk locals, and here you can see lots of people hanging around.
