Some years ago it would be hard to imagine anything like that in the Belarusian capital. But the fact is: in just three years a deserted industrial Kastryčnickaja street has transformed into a centre of art life and parties, and can now boast some unique street art created by world’s best known artists.
The third festival Vulica Brasil closed in Minsk this Saturday with a colourful carnival and a huge open air celebration.
Kastryčnickaja street has actually become a piece of art itself. In three weeks Brazilian and Belarusian artists have gifted it the world’s largest mural, a mural with stricking black-and-white fanstasies and even some street art on wheels – two old trams were given a second life with the help of paint.
Despite bad weather, over a thousand people gathered at the closing of the festival on September 17. There was no place for greyness – only music, dances and a lot of fun!
World’s largest street art piece. Well, the half of it!
Mr. Zubr is watching you!
And another huge piece – totally out of this world!

Lenin Lived, Lenin Lives!
When your outfit and the background are a perfect match!
Better than perfect!
A photo with a tram is a MUST!
And what’s this?
Warming them up!
Doing things like that in Vulica Brasil is not illegal!
Brazilian music and Belarusian dances!
And hot dancers!
Set a reminder and see you next year!
