Niamiha is a mysterious river hidden in the pipes deep under the ground. One of the oldest streets in Minsk is named after it. The street has been ruined and restored but preserved the secrets of the city, as if the ghost of old Minsk still lives there. In the new episode of the audio series about Minsk by 34travel and MTS we’re going to trace the history of Niamiha from current days back to the ancient times.
According to the most romantic version, the origins of the name “Niamiha” stems from Lithuanian word for insomnia. Sometimes this place feels like the DNA of the city, its magic code. Deciphering it promises to shed light on the historical perspectives of Minsk and get a glimpse of its future.
