Welcome To The Hero City
“It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma…” – Winston Churchill
Minsk: one of the few cities in Europe that remains a mystery to the outside world. The capital of the state that represents the last remnants of the Soviet Union and the hub of a nation shrouded in mystery and intrigue.
And a mystery it is indeed. Stay several weeks in this city and you’d barely begin to unpick its secrets. Stay a year and you may have scratched away the surface. The only way to really know this city is if you live here.
This guide is our gift to the visitor, an outsider’s view from the inside. Thoughtfully brought to you by expats living in this fine city, Minsk Hero City is your one-stop guide to everything you need to know about the Belarusian capital.
WHY US? WHY, INDEED… There’s countless travel guides to Minsk although we believe we are the only onw that is truly informative. Printed guides have been written by those who have visited the country briefly and therefore have not even begun to unwrap Minsk’s mystery. The treasures of Minsk are well hidden and the best spots are largely unknown. That’s where these guides fail miserably. The majority of online guides have been written by Belarusians and whilst these are thoroughly informative, they are often incomplete and not aimed directly at the western tourist, backpacker, businessman or bloke seeking his internet lover.
Minsk Hero City has been specifically written for YOU!
