Through Minsk by Bike

Linguabike calls you to an Utopian City of the sun - Minsk! It was rebuilt on an impulse after the World War II almost from nothing. Wide avenues, lit by the sunlight, huge buildings with high ceilings and majestic columns, vast abandoned squares, palaces, numerous parks, united with a bike path - an ideal mythic city in an Utopian Empire.

The following guided tours are available, you can also choose a bike guide: 

1) Grand Avenue
By Russian Sparrow
How lucky is the city, that has never been the capital, why the main avenue wasn't destroyed during the war and which places are not allowed to be in your camera - these are only some useful facts, that you'll find out. 
We'll meet near the National Library and will ride along the Avenue of Independence, time to time riding off the road to the gateways of the Stalin-style skyscrapers. 
Just imagine that The Library is a golf ball and an underground shopping center at the end of the avenue is a hole - and let us roll!
In the city centre we'll turn into the Old City and through Alexander's and Michael's Parks will ride down the Gate of Minsk. Our tour will end up near the Citadel where you'll find out why here there was a castle but without an upland.
