Minsk – a Beginners Guide

Anthony Bourdain:

“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.”

Minsk City Gates

The obvoius place to start a visit to Minsk is the Independence avenue or Praspiekt Niezaliežnasci, a broad boulevard that stretches all through the city center.

Along the Avenue you find all the classic attractions, in fact the avenue itself is a landmarkand a typical example of Soviet or Stalin era style ( also nicknamed Sovieet brutalism).

As we drive down the avenue we pass house number 31 where Lee Harvey Oswald (said to be the murderer of John F. Kennedy) lived in the early 60’s.
