Minsk wasn’t too bustling and snowy on New Year’s night. But people went out to the streets anyway – to marvel at a fireworks show, share some happiness with each other and say “Good bye!” to the turbulent 2016.
Many people gathered in Oktiabrskaya Square, near the main New Year tree.
But most of the fun was unveiling in Nemiga where people danced to a concert while waiting for the fireworks display scheduled after the midnight.
That were stunning when they lighted the sky!
And – hello 2017!
