Independence Square is over 7 hectares big, which makes it one of the biggest squares in Europe. It was designed by Iosif Langbard for conducting rallies and military parades. The following facilities are located there today:

  • Government headquarters
  • Belarusian State University
  • Maxim Tank Belarusian State Pedagogical University
  • Minsk Metro headquarters
  • Minsk Mayor’s Office
  • Former commercial apartment buildings of the early 20th century, the Architect sculpture
  • Church of Saints Simon and Helen (Red Church)

Also there is a huge underground mall "Stolitsa" with many cafes and shops - a perfect place to buy souvenirs.

A great place filled with vacationers people. The only moments there is no shade, so as not to roast in the sun.

Отличное место наполненное отдыхающими людьми. Единственный минут нигде нет тенёчка, чтобы не жариться на солнце.

The biggest square of the city. Was reconstructed several years, after which its appearance changed completely. A new area of Minsk residents saw in 2006. Under the square is the largest shopping center "Capital".

Самая большая площадь города. Реконструировалась несколько лет, после чего ее облик полностью изменился. Новую площадь минчане увидели в 2006 году. Под площадью находится крупнейший торговый центр "Столица".

Beautiful. Minsk generally affects the scale of the squares and avenues. The area is beautiful, there is a beautiful Church and an underground shopping center

A beautiful square. And when you consider that the bottom still Torgovy center "Capital", then it is just a gorgeous place

Красивая площадь. А если учесть, что с низу еще и торшовый центр "Столица", то вообще просто шикарное место
