The first recorded mention of Minsk dates back to 1067.

Legend has it that once upon a time a fairy-tale hero named Menesk constructed a divine windmill at the confluence of two rivers – Svisloch and Piarespa. This windmill had the power to grind rocks into flour, inspiring a belief that concrete has the power to feed. Centuries passed but a small part of the fairy tale aura remained as the modern-day Minsk is not simply a beautiful legend – but a city which covers all important trends in contemporary Europe – impeccable style, superb comfort and great opportunity for everyone.

The beautifully preserved Trinity District, located in the heart of Minsk, is a historic center which not only creates a feeling of comfort in a big city – but also holds status of a major tourist attraction.

Historic architectural monuments – the National Theatre of Opera and Ballet, the Belarusian State Circus and the National Library – beautifully offset modern infrastructure – the Minsk2 national airport, the railway station building, the convenient beltway – as well as modern hypermarkets and centers of business, shopping and entertainment.

Minsk is on the list of 11 largest cities in Western Europe – both by population and building territory.
