The garden of the Belarusian State University (BSU), typically open to students and staff only, will be welcoming all visitors for five days in June.
A unique place at the heart of Minsk.
For many years now the garden, which Belarus’ main university proudly calls its landmark, has been closed to the general public. One can not get into the green oasis behind the BSU’s main building unless they study or work here.
Anyone can get inside on 22, 24, 26, 28 and 30 June by showing an ID or passport to the security.
What’s there to see?
Unlike American colleges or European universities, Belarusian unis seldom have a campus with a garden or patios, which makes BSU’s garden unique in a way.
Besides, the internal territory of the university is decorated with numerous sculptures of renowned figures – from Belarusian grands Francysk Skaryna and Euphrosyne of Polotsk to busts of Gandhi and Confucius.
There’s also a 1975 monument in the memory of the students and teachers who died in combat during WWII.
So don’t miss a unique opportunity to look ‘behind the curtain’ if you’re visiting Minsk these days!
