Golden Morning in Minsk, Belarus
Minsk is not only the capital of Belarus but also one of the most beautiful cities in Eastern Europe. There are a lot of ancient sights in the city which are widely visited by tourists. They include many fortresses and parks which are especially beautiful in the morning!
One of the most interesting sights in Minsk is the Cathedral of Saint Virgin Mary. It is an amazingly beautiful building of baroque style. This Roman Catholic cathedral appeared in 1710 but was later destroyed and rebuilt. It used to be a church of the Jesuit monastery. Another outstanding landmark is the Minsk Town Hall. It was built in 1600 and is located in the central part of the city. It has once been the magistrate, court and the library. The building was destroyed in 1857 by order of Nicholas I. The idea of restoring it appeared in 1980. Today the Town Hall houses the exhibitions of the Minsk museum. The clock along with the city coat of arms is placed on the top of the tower. Next tourist attraction in Minsk is the Church of Holy Trinity. It is also called Saint Roch on the Golden Hill. It’s a Roman Catholic church, which dates back to the 15th century.
Minsk is a very cozy and compact city.
So, I will start with saying that on my perfect day I would not get up earlier than 11 a. m. I like to sleep long hours but it does not happen often in my busy life. That is why I hope that I will have sound sleep in the morning. I expect my perfect day to be sunny, quiet and warm. I would like my breakfast to be served in bed, and I would have it while watching some funny comedies on TV. Then I would call my friends and we would go for a walk in our local park to breathe some fresh air and enjoy the view of magnificent tall trees and thick bushes framed with neat sidewalks and roads for cyclists. We would go to the cafe in the central part of the park without any doubt.
The beautiful location, fresh air and nature.
A very quiet, tidy and interesting gentleman.
