Two Things You Absolutely Must Do In Minsk This Spring

May is here and it means that music and fast food season in Belarus and Minsk, in particular, is on. What will you choose – cool tunes of the Upper Town, hearty meals of an open-air food court or both?

While Pesochnitsa, the meeting point of local party goers and hungry street food hunters, has been blasting since Labour Day, music festivals in the city centre will start on Saturday, 4 May.

Music season in the Upper Town

The first near-summer concert Summer Season Opening will take place at Plošča Svabody on Saturday, 4 May. Be there at 8.30pm at an outdoor stage of the Minsk Town Hall.

Baltimore-based rapper and musician Wordsmith, MADE-UP Street Beat A Capella Group and Drozdy band will be waiting for you here to hit the improvised the dancefloor.

Season 2019 promises to be fire.

What to expect? Fancied by many Classics at the Town Hall, Jazz Evenings, Peshehodka as well as the Days of National Cultures are guaranteed.

A special treat of the season is a new theater project called No Stage. First summer and street theaters performances will take place at Revaliucyjnaja and Kamsamol’skaja intersection on 1 June.

Best part? All concerts and performances are absolutely FREE!

Hippest street food in town

All the youth (and, well, not only) have been waiting for the long winter to go for this to happen! Pesochnitsa food court re-opened at Gorizont plant grounds for the summer season.

More food trucks, fixed prices on food sets, more selfie-perfect locations, more places to chill.

Pesochnitsa is open daily 12 pm to 11 pm from 1 May to mid-September.

Organizers promise new menus every month and half, live music and designer market on weekends, and much more.
