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!

Reviews about Minsk's Cultural Stars

Sounds Very interesting and Cultural

United States,
Palace of the Republic

It is very deep, it is very inside the soul. DonĀ“t miss this place.

Isle of Tears

Interesting !

Y Gallery

Quite moving indeed... Although the original plan was to pay tribute to soldiers who died in Afghanistan, the memorial unveiled in 1996 is dedicated to all Sons of their Home Country who died overseas...
