Surely you have heard that with the help of the mechanics of one of the most popular games of the last decade Minecraft people create copies of famous buildings. So in this game universe, objects from all over the world are virtually available, including famous ones from various books. For example, there are: the “White Fortress” of Minas Tirith from the Lord of the Rings, the city of “Sunspear” from the Game of Thrones and many others. In Minecraft builds a representative and from Belarus, Andrey Soltanthat prioritizes sights. On the his Youtube channel there are review videos where you can see various religious buildings of our country. How the pixel cities built by Andrey look like, we will compare in this article.
