and squares and its historical downtown area, get acquainted with the diversity of architectural styles.

To begin with, I'll give you some general facts about Minsk. It is considered to be one of Europe's most compact cities due to the combination of buildings, green zones and river semi-rings. It stretches for about 20km from north to south and 22km from west to east. The main water artery of the city, the river Svisloch, is not very big. The population of Minsk is over 1 800 000 people. The city has a long history. It was founded in 1067. Unfortunately Minsk was ruined many times in numerous wars. But some buildings survived and others were reconstructed. Today it's a unique mixture of soviet-style, ancient and modern architecture.

We will start our tour with Independence square. It dates back to late 19th — early 20th centuries. On the left you can see the Cathedral of St. Simeon & St. Helen, the only building that has survived from that time. Sometimes it's called Red Church. It is a monument of neo-Gothic architecture with the elements of Art Nouveau style. The other building you can see on the left is the House of Government. There are two other important buildings in the square. They are the Belarusian Teachers' Training University and the Belarusian State University. You should also know that there is Underground Trade Centre in the square. Another square which is definitely worth visiting is October Square. October Square began to take shape in the 1950s-1960s. The most famous building in the square is the Palace of the Republic, which you can see on the left. On the eastern side of the square the Belarusian State Museum of the History of the Great Patriotic War is situated. On the right you can see an old Central Park, behind which stands the Residence of the President of the Republic of Belarus. Victory Square with the majestic Victory Monument in the centre is one of the most impressive sights in Minsk. You should also visit Gorky park, which is nearby. A part of the park's territory is occupied by an amusement park. It also has an educational observatory with planetarium. Now we are on our way to the National Library of Belarus, an amazing example of the modern architecture. It is now located in a new 72-metre high building. The building has 22 floors. Its main architectural component has the shape of a diamond. The library houses the largest collection of the Belarusian print and the third largest collection of books in Russian. The National Library is situated in a park on the river bank and has an observation deck looking over the city. Our next destination is the Trinity Suburb. The first settlement on the left bank of the river Svisloch appeared in the 12-13th century. So it is one of the oldest parts of the city. Historians suppose that the name of the place originates from a Roman-Catholic Trinity Church that was situated there. In the 14th century the Voznesensky monastery was erected on the top of the mountain. In 1620 a stone church was built. In the 15-17th century Trinity suburb was surrounded by stone fortifications. Trinity Suburb mostly consisted of wooden buildings, where the gentry lived. But it is a birthplace of the outstanding Belarusian poet Maxim Bogdanovich. Yanka Kupala's house was located there too. In 1982-1985 the
