Minsk is Belarus’ capital and biggest city, located on the Svislach and Nyamiha rivers. It serves as the Commonwealth of Independent States’ administrative headquarters (CIS).

During WWII, 80 percent of the city was destroyed, reducing the population to 50,000.

In the 1950s, the city is rebuilt using Stalinist design, which favors large structures, huge roads, and wide squares. As a consequence of increasing industry, the city flourished swiftly.

A section of the city center is made up of large Soviet-Bloc architectural “palaces.” As a result, Minsk is a fantastic site to come for anybody interested in the Soviet Union who wants to see it nearly alive.
