Here you can enjoy all the splendour and pompousness of the Soviet monumental classicism or the Stalinist Empire style.
This is a single ensemble of residential and administrative buildings of ideal proportions and numerous decorative components, which became the face of Minsk restored after the war.
The city's main avenue runs from the South-West to the North-East. The Avenue hosts five principle squares: Independence Square, October Square, Victory Square, Yakub Kolas Square and Kalinin Square. Every 2 – 2.5 km the Avenue runs into a square, with each following square being smaller than the previous one. The Independence Square is the biggest one, and this is where the Avenue begins. Feel free to take a walk along the Avenue's broad pavement, pop into a café, visit cinemas and explore the shops. Experience the ambience of the October Square, enjoy the shade of the Yanka Kupala and Maxim Gorky parks, stop for a while at the eternal flame at the Victory Square...
The Moskovskaya (blue) metro line and the bus route #100 runs along the Avenue.
