Minsk is a hero city and ghost city; it is forever young and is changing rapidly. Together with MTS we are launching a series of podcasts about the town on the river Svilslač: its legendary places, historical neighborhoods, locals' favotite spots, its past and present.
Let's start with "Minsk for beginners". As in a true detective story, we will dive into the throbbing suspense of the capital of Belarus. Utopia and revitalization, Soviet vibe and nostalgic groove, bas-reliefs of the Bar Centralny and street art of Kastryčnickaja Street, World Of Tanks and Medok cake – here are all you need to make friends with the city.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s your first visit or you have been living here for a long time. It’s never too early to take the first steps and get to know the city better. It’s never too late to hit the reset button and start the relationship all over. Download our podcast in English for quiet walks around the city.
The pavement is melting, the poplar fluff is in the air, this city is whispering its spells. Minsk can surprise, you just need to listen.
