Minsk's Cultural Stars

The Soviet Union was no slacker when it came to culture, leaving a strong legacy behind of pride in art, music, theatre, and dance. Along with these classic pursuits, Minsk has also evolved into a strong centre for contemporary culture including avant-garde art, experimental films, and a continuously evolving underground music scene. Minsk's many museums also offer a fine window into the tumultuous history of this fascinating nation. Check out our directory for some ideas on where to experience the best of Minsk culture!
