This very large square is just a nice place to have a relaxing little wander, or sit and enjoy the flowers, fountain and architecture around you. And as others noted, if you get bored, there's shopping and a metro underneath. On a sunny day, a nice place for a bit of a rest.
just nice, nothing interesting, there is underground mall, and metro exit. near hotel minsk, nothing to tell more
Built over subway in front of church and state ministry. Dominated by large bust of Lenin. 3rd largest square of it's type in the world
It is a good central square with lots of sights. Buildings of state universities, government buildings, monument to Lenin, Cathedral and monument with municipal coat of arms of Belarus centres.You can get here by metro (pl. Lenina station), bus 1. 100 or just 3 minutes walk from a railway station Minsk.Under the square is a trade centre Stolitsa.
Minsk is my most favorite European city. I love everything there!!! My favorite, of course, is The Victory Square, but this one is beautiful too.
Minsk has a central square with Cathedral of St. Simon and St. Elena. Cathedral has a red colour. In front of a cathedral there are a statue of St. George´s and the Memorial nuclear explosions. There is a government building with a statue of V. I. Lenin´s. Main post office is on the corner.
This square represents a good introduction to typical athmosphere in Minsk. A university building, Belarus Parliament building, Minsk Hotel,the nice Red chruch, and a monument featuring three stroks with the bigger belarussian cities to symbolize independence. Underneath the square a local shopping centre can be found that is a bizarre mixture of a western shopping centre and state controlled building.
Площадь внушает уважение и почти благоговейный трепет. Масштабно, сильно, монументально, торжественно. Теперь я понимаю, почему многие международные саммиты проходят именно в Минске. Не стыдно пригласить иностранных гостей.
The Square is beautiful and a great place to sit on your own and get lost in your own thoughts and impressions either of the visit or just a general self introspection. It brought out a deep sense of an inner peace.
Отличное место для отдыха и фотографий. Самая чистая площадь в мире)) Очень понравилось и была солнечная погода, Минск- город герой. И достопримечательности это оправдывают.
