Not Only Soviet Union! Belarus History Of 1920-1930s Is On Display In Minsk

Belarus is mostly perceived by foreigners and tourists as the ex-country of the USSR. But hey, don’t underastimate the country that was first mentioned in the early XIII century and thus has plenty to tell and show.

Jump in our time machine!

To plunge into the atmosphere of Belarus in 1920-1930s, we’ll go straight to plošča Svabody, precisely to 37 Praspyekt Nyezalyezhnastsi.

Here we can walk along a stylized street to take a peep at the local school, post office and bank.

Then we’ll go to the cinema, check in a sewing studio, household goods store or drop by to a bookshop.

“Somewhere west of Minsk… The daily life of Western Belarus ” shows day-to-day routine of the Belarusians of that time.

By the way, here, we will have a chance to meet local residents in person.

“The Firefighter,” “The Woman Under the Umbrella”, “The Boy”and other life-size puppets will be waiting for us to come over.
