Following the war roads

Day 1

  • Arrival to Minsk by air
  • CITY TOUR OF MINSK (10.00–13.00). The capital city of Belarus was first settled over 900 years ago, in 1067. Much of old Minsk was razed to the ground during World War II. Among the sights that you will see are: Independence Square with the House of Government and “Red” Krasny Roman-Catholic Church, Victory Square with its tall grey obelisk and eternal flame honoring the heroes of World War II, Troitskoye Predmestye (Trinity Suburb) — restored buildings of the 19th century, Holy Trinity Cathedral and St.Catherin’s Church — architectural monuments of the 17th cent.
  • 19.00 Dinner at the Soviet style café Tovarish. The interior of the café is designed in the Soviet style, where each item has a connection with the Soviet epoch. The food here is delicious and tasty.

Day 2

  • After breakfast a Visit of War Museum

This is the only museum in the world that elucidates the history of the World War II so comprehensively. It was opened on November 7, 1944, when severe struggle was still going on. The museum’s collection and 30 exposition halls contain approximately 80.000 unique exhibits: a rich collection of documents and photos, weapons used by troops and partisans including home-made ones. There is a diorama of the Maly Trastyanets death camp (the third largest in Europe). There are also tanks and armoured carriers outside in the courtyard

Lunch

  • Stalin line tour In the thirties of the 20th cent. on the Western border of the former USSR a network of defense military fortifications was built. These fortifications stretched from the Baltic Sea to the Black Sea. All in all 23 fortified zones were constructed including 4 on the territory of Belarus.

In those days the Western border in Belarus was within 35-40 km from Minsk, the capital of Belarus.

When on the territory of the complex you can do everything — get into 2 or 3-embrasure pillbox and to become “a machine-gunner”, sit down on a chair of a gun-layer and become an artillery man, stroll along trenches or climb up the tank, one of the museum of military equipment exhibits, just to feel yourself in combat situation on the front line of defense... and thank God, this is not a reality but only a touch to the history the memory of which will be preserved in souvenirs bought from there and photos taken.

Dinner at Stalin Line

Day 3

  • After breakfast at the hotel restaurant Khatyn and Glory Mound. The memorial complex of Khatyn commemorates the site of the village which was burnt to the ground by the Nazis. You can still see the outline of the streets and from the former chimney tops bells toll as a sobering reminder. From Khatyn travel to the Glory Mound, an imposing monument set on top of an artificial hill. The monument was constructed to honour the Soviet Army, which liberated Belarus from the Nazis in 1944. Soil from the nine “Hero Cities” of the former Soviet Union and from World War II battlefields was brought handful by handful to make the artificial hill alongside the Minsk to Moscow highway.
