Stranger Walking by Alexey Dulin in Minsk, Belarus

In Belarus there are a lot of beautiful cities, I live in the capital, Minsk. Despite the large number of inhabitants and population density in Minsk, there is much attention is paid to the beautiful parks and squares.

I like to walk in the local parks in the early morning when everything is crisp and fresh. I especially love autumn in Minsk as there are amazing foggy days. The photo above was one such day.

Tell us about the place you live:

Minsk is a beautiful and interesting city. It has many contrasts. There is a stark contrast between the modern and vintage architecture. The people of Minsk love nature and try their best to protect it. There are a lot of parks, reservoirs and there is event a big lake that locals call the Minsk Sea.

A perfect day?

A perfect day for me would be to wake up early in the morning and to have breakfast at home. Then I would meet up with friends to go do some interesting photo projects.

What is the best thing about Minsk?

The uniqueness of placement and proximity of all our parks, rivers, and lakes. There are also a lot of places for entertainment; кафэ, shops, sports grounds.

What is the worst?

In the autumn, the sun goes down very early but in the evening the city is very beautiful.

What would be surprising about Minsk to an outsider?

The goodwill of the locals

If Minsk was a person or character who would it be?

A very intelligent and polite person.

Who are three of your favorite artists?

I love photography and I have many favorites. Some of the people who inspire me every day are Ravi Vora, Max Gor and Jason M. Peterson.

    I loved minsk, very glad I visited. But I probably wouldn’t visit again (once is enough). It feels very different than every other capital in europe that i’ve visited. Now that they relaxed the visa laws (can get a 5 day no visa on arrival pass) it is worth visiting for anyone in europe (the flight is 2 or 3 hours i guess from most places in europe). I did a write up on https://completecityguides.com/minsk/city-guide – I really do recommend people visit minsk now, before it changes too much in the future.
