Minsk, Belarus’ capital city is located in the heart of the country. It is a city with interesting old-style buildings and a selection of newer architecture. The iconic centre of the city is Victory Square with its 40 metre/130 feet high obelisk. The main thoroughfare, the impressive Independence Avenue which starts in the centre of Minsk, is 15 kilometres/9 miles in length and contains many shops, art galleries, museums and theatres. The gem of Minsk is the neighbourhood called Trinity Square. This old town area offers cozy little streets and colourful tiled-roof houses. It is also an area where one can find art galleries, museums, antique stores, cafes and restaurants on a Belarus vacation. 

The National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus contains a rich collection of art with over 30, 000 exhibits. The National Museum of History and Culture of Belarus has amazingly 377,000 exhibits including books, coins, weapons, musical instruments, jewellery and clothes. The Museum of the Great Patriotic War reflects the recent history of the Nazi occupation. A rather strange venue which can be visited is the former residence of Lee Harvey Oswald who lived here prior to his infamous return to the United States.
