Modern National Library of Belarus, Minsk: 5 reviews and 20 photos
The National Library of Belarus was founded in 1922. The current 72 m tall building was completed in summer 2006 and consists of 22 storeys. It was designed in the form of a rhombicuboctahedron (diamond) by the Belarusian architects Mihail Vinogradov and Viktor Kramarenko.
The National Library of Belarus is also home to the only public observation deck in Minsk. Unfortunately, when we visited the building on a late Saturday evening, it was closed.
At night the facade of the library can be illuminated by more than 4600 LEDs with dynamic light scenes.
A statue of the father of Belarusian publishing, Francysk Skaryna, can be found just next to the National Library of Belarus.
The National Library of Belarus is situated in a green park about 3 km north east of Minsk's city centre. The nearest metro stop is "Moskovskaya", from where it is still a 5-10 minutes walk to the east.
Address: National Library, Nezavisimosti pr. 116, Minsk
