One of the main attractions of any excursion route around the capital of Belarus is Trinity Suburb in Minsk. The place is located in the very center of the city Starovilenskaya street... The nearest metro station is Nemiga. You can get from the metro in a few minutes on foot.
History and stages of construction of the Trinity Suburb
The history of the Trinity Suburb began many centuries ago on the banks of the Svisloch River, where Minskers already lived in XIII-XIV centuries. Instead of the current stone buildings at that time, one could see wooden houses here. Which formed the basis of the city center. However, a strong fire that occurred in 1809 radically changed the appearance of this place. Most of the buildings were completely burned out, so the area was actually rebuilt. Therefore, the Trinity Suburb, which can be seen today, was partially formed in the first half of the 19th century.
A significant part of the historical appearance was damaged in the middle of the XNUMXth century, both from the war and from simple irrational decisions.
The current appearance of the suburb is significantly different from that which was in the old days. But the fact that Yanka Kupala and Maksim Bogdanovich used to walk along these narrow streets makes you go back to those distant times.
These small buildings are perceived by people as a single attraction, and not as a collection of beautiful and separate buildings. Nowadays, in the historical area you can find a variety of museums, restaurants, banks, cafes and shops.
