The Pearl of Minsk

By Linda Tancs

The capital of Belarus, Minsk is a colorful city full of historical places, monuments and sports centers. Among its many offerings, a true gem is Trinity Suburb, located in the historic part of Minsk, on the left bank of the Svisloch River. Dating to around the 12th century, the development then known as Trinity Hill was a thriving commercial center. No less so today, this picturesque setting with pastel-colored homes boasts museums, antique shops, souvenir stores (bearing items with iconic views of Trinity), cafes, restaurants and art galleries. Get there via Niamiha station on the metro.
