Minsk Region travel guide

3.9
Castles · Specialty Museums · Historic Sites
The central region of the republic, Minsk Region borders all others and is home to the nation's capital. Enjoy the arts at one of the two major theaters, or explore the 17 different museums showcasing the area's culture and history. Indulge in a meal at a chic cafe or highly rated restaurant in the capital city, and dance the night away at one of the many nightclubs. An area decimated during World War II, the capital city was rebuilt to Stalin's taste and makes a bold statement with its modern stone and cement buildings--reminders of the Soviet past--juxtaposed with its cosmopolitan crowd and culture. In contrast to the high-rise concrete buildings and general buzz of the capital, the slow-paced surrounding countryside features the country's largest lake and small towns and villages filled with ancient churches, cathedrals, monasteries, and castles.
