Olympic Sports Complex

(Minsk, 2A Surganova Str.)

During the II European Games the Olympic Sports Complex will host the Beach Soccer and Archery events.

The Olympic Sports Complex was established in 1998 and is used both as a professional training site for Belarusian athletes and as a public sports and recreational facility.

The 12-hectare complex is located by the Botanical Gardens and the Chelyuskinites Park, which is a recreational area that has valuable natural healing resources like mineral water.

The facility includes 3 objects: the Water Sports Palace, the Sports and Recreation Centre and the Olymp Sports and Recreation Centre.

Water Sports Palace (Minsk, 2A Surganova Str.) was opened in 1967 and was the largest sports complex in Europe at the time (with the capacity of 1,000 viewers.)

During the 1998 reconstruction the inside of the building was rebuilt completely - the seating capacity was increased to 1,200, the swimming pools and adjacent lockers, gyms and other premises were renovated. The outside of the building was preserved as it’s a cultural and historical heritage site. The grand opening took place on October 20, 2003.

There are 3 swimming pools at the complex: a 2 m-deep pool used for athletic training, a 4,5 m-deep diving pool with platforms and springboards and a 0,8m-deep children’s swimming pool for 2-5 y.o. children.

The Water Sports Palace provides regular and synchronized swimming, diving and water aerobics classes for children and adults.

Besides the pool area the facility offers gyms, shaping gymnastics, aerobics, choreography and dancing halls, tanning and massage parlors, trampolines, a billiards club, the Nemo children’s entertainment room, a SPA centre and a cafeteria.

There’s a beach by the mineral water pool that has deck chairs, a children’s playground and pool and a sports equipment rental.

There’s also a football stadium with both regular and artificial coating, outdoor tennis courts and beach soccer and volleyball courts.

Sports and Recreation Centre (Minsk, 2A Surganova Str.) provides sports and fitness services to the general public. The centre has indoor and outdoor swimming pools with hydro massage, cascade showers and pearl baths, Russian and Finnish saunas, Turkish hammam.

The outdoor pool is the only pool in Minsk filled with mineral water. The centre has its own well with sodium chloride water which is similar to Baltic and Black see water in chemical composition.

There’s also a summer recreational area with a pool, deck chairs, a smaller pool and a playground for kids, and sports equipment rentals.

Olymp Sports and Recreation Centre (Minsk, 2 Yakuba Kolasa Str.)

was built in 1939. It underwent several stages of reconstruction: first 1944, then late 1990s and early 2000s. A full-scale renovation was finalized in 2006 and resulted in the 25m pool, saunas and game courts maintenance and an addition of a billiards club and a gym.

The pool area now provides swimming and aqua fitness classes for adults. The recreation center includes gyms and several game courts, aerobics and shaping gymnastics halls, Turkish hammam, saunas, tanning parlors, hydro massage and bubble baths, a waterfall, an upwards shower, a billiards club, a table tennis court, a conference room and a cafeteria.
