Minsk is a city that is much more interesting to hear about. A lot of historical sites don't look super bright or special, but there's a legend behind every building. A good guide can correctly show the capital, the main one can not make a mistake with the choice.

Well, if possible, I advise you to go to the castles - it will not be superfluous, whatever one may say, but you will like it.
