I frequently come to Minsk on business and you pass this on the way to and from the airport. I finally visited this after a trip to Khatyn Complex. The view from the top is beautiful. We were there at 2100 on a Summer evening...More

I always liked Soviet Inion Iconography, independently of the fact that you believe in the idea of radical communism the way the propaganda and the iconography works produces great pieces of contemporary art. This mound is one of these examples, bringing an impressive monument for...More

You'll see this striking monument on your way from Minsk International Airport to Minsk city. It is well worth a detour to have a look. Reminiscent of the battlefield of Waterloo, this 70 metre high manmade mound commemorates the 1944 battle to liberate Minsk, 'the...More

This is off the road to the airport.There is an old style Soviet cafe,and alongside are 6 Soviet tanks which people climbed into and over.I didn't go up to the top.I understand why it was built here,but not likely to attract many visitors.

But once you've seen it that's it. Glorification of red army liberation of Belarus and Minsk following pincer movement here against the nazis. 248 or so steps to top but only shallow steps

It's the memory sign. Someone tells that the sunrise is worth seeing from the top of Mount - but this is questionable. Repeat again - no entertainments. It's fully hand-made memorial.
