Visiting any city for the first time would definitely bring new emotions. Some tourists shared their first impressions about Minsk with us. In fact they are absolutely different people, who are occupied in various and not similar spheres of life. We got the tourists’ opinions about the most beautiful places of our capital and received some suggestions how to make it look better.
One of the tourists says that his most favorite places in Minsk are those where the remains of the old city can be observed. For example, Nemiga str, Lenina str or Nezavisimosti avenue, which are situated not far from the contemporary city center. He points out that the high-tech buildings in Minsk, the number of which is getting bigger year by year, can greatly damage the image of the city. Like it happened to Moscow.
The image of Minsk is pretty good in general. There are so many flowers and trees around the city. In spite of this, there is a lack of festivals, international exhibitions, concerts of world-famous celebrities. The street-art and street-music are hardly observed in the city, which makes Minsk rather boring and plain. In Europe it is a common practice to go for a walk in the city and enjoy street musicians playing various kinds of music.
Many tourists point out that the first thing that comes to their mind when they think about Minsk is that it is clean and safe. Having a walk in the evening in the streets of Minsk is really secure, and the absence of garbage in the streets is really pleasing for the eye.
The purpose of our little project is to find out what are the strong points and the weak points of Minsk. Maybe after it activists and enthusiasts will take more effort in making our city look better. And as a result, our capital will attract more and more people from all over the world!
