Just over 50 years ago, the premiere of an action-packed film was shown on Soviet cinema screens. “World guy”, produced by the Belarusfilm studio. The main character of this film is an engineer at the Minsk MAZ plant, so some of the scenes were filmed at real locations of the enterprise. Then 95% of the plot is transferred far from Minsk - to the invented mountainous country of Nuobaria. I think for many people the last minutes of the film will be especially interesting, when the audience is shown footage of Minsk taken from a helicopter in 1971.
Thanks to these shots, you can, for example, see the construction process of the “Palace of Mastatstva”. The building behind it attracts attention Church of St. Roch, but without a tower.
The central avenue of the city has many trees and little traffic.
There are no underground passages yet, and there is even a large parking lot on Lenin Street.
Few people will remember this Independence Square.
Curious to see from above victory Square. In 1971, they had not yet begun to build a metro on this site, so the square is round, and not oval, as we are used to seeing it today.
