Minsk was a beautiful city I'm sure at one time. However just about all of Minsk's charming old buildings were destroyed during WWII.

So what was built in it's place in a prime example of efficient Soviet-style 1950's-era gray buildings.

Not all of Minsk's old buildings were destroyed in WWII. What was left constitutes Minsk's Old Town, about 5 or 6 buildings. Not a whole lot but I saw it.

Memorial to Jewish victims of WWII

Idyllic Park was once a Cemetary...

But the Soviets wanted a park here so they removed all the graves, and made a park.
