Alexander public garden in Minsk was founded in 1836 on the initiative of Mayor Leopold Delpatsa. There is a fountain in the center of the park: it was installed by italian architector Bernini in honor of opening the city plumbing.

In 1890, in one corner of the square the building of the Minsk City Theater ("Winter" theater, today National Theater named after Yanka Kupala) was built. At its opening in 1888, there were even members of the Imperial family.

Next to the theater, the first in Minsk public toilet was built in 1912. The history of its creation is quite interesting. Toilet built a famous architect of its own funds in retaliation to one rich man. The man ordered the architect to build a city residence. And when the work was done - he refused to pay. For this architect built in the center of Minsk toilet - accurate reduced copy of the residence.

Alexander Square - the beautiful place to rest while sightseeing in Minsk.

Always a fun walk in the Park. It is small, but very nice and quiet atmosphere, I can not believe that next to a bustling Avenue.

Всегда с удовольствие гуляю в данном парке. Он небольшой, но с очень приятной и спокойной атмосферой, даже не верится что рядом шумный проспект.

Когда я выхожу из школы , чаще всего я иду мимо этого сквера. В нем осенью очень много листьев , а зимой много снега. Там наши ученики очень много проводят времени .

A small cozy Park located between St. Engels, Nezalezhnasti Avenue, House officers and the residence of the President. In the center of the Park is the historic fountain sculpture "Boy with a Swan". In the past (USSR) Minsk residents called the Park "Pankovka", by analogy with a famous episode of the "Golden calf" by Ilf and Petrov ("walk, toss the bird!!!").

In the Park is the national theatre. Yanka Kupala. In the South-Western corner of the Park is the monument to the underground fighters who were executed by the Germans during the war..

Небольшой уютный парк, расположенный между ул.Энгельса, проспектом Незалежнасти, Домом офицеров и резиденцией Президента. В центре парка находится исторический фонтан со скульптурой "Мальчик с лебедем". В прошлом (СССР) минчане называли парк "Паниковка", по аналогии с известным эпизодом из "Золотого теленка" Ильфа и Петрова ("Паниковский, бросьте птицу!!!").

В парке находится Национальный театр им. Янки Купалы. В юго-западном углу парка находится монумент подпольщикам, казненным немцами во время войны..
