Sightseeing in MinskTrinity Suburb
One of the chief glories of Minsk is Trinity Suburb, a delight of every visitor of taste. It is a tangle of narrow streets lined with fascinating little shops. Delightful small houses seem to whisper their secrets to each other across the cobbled way. It's the way Minsk used to look like before The Second World War. We also call it an Old Town.
The Trinity Suburb is the oldest part of Minsk. It consists of many low-dwelling houses and the distance between them is very small.
Along with modern buildings, you will come across old churches and monuments. To have an insight into the old Minsk, travel to the east of the Svisloch River, whereTrinity Suburb (Troitskoye Predmestie) was rebuilt in the 18th–19th century style.
The suburb’s high street was Troitskaya St., renamed Alexandrovskaya in the 19th century (now Bogdanovich St.). In this street there was a house where the classic of the Belarusian literature Maxim Bogdanovich was born.Unfortunately the house was demolished during the war, but the poet's museum is situated not far from the place.
