In the new episode of the audio series about Minsk by 34travel and MTS we’re going to dive into the history of Minsk of the last hundred years by walking through its powerful spots, where creative and active community was hanging out at different times.
Why did the creative youth gather in a small wooden house near the Red Church during the WWI? Where did the coolest artists of Minsk work in the mid-70s? What secrets are kept by Reservation, a legendary club from the 90s? And how did the modern art gallery bring up a whole generation?
