around hippies' sites of Minsk and even more...


We'll see legendary Minsk hippies' meeting points and promenade's routes: Broadway, Green entrance, Scrapyard, etc. We'll visit " Ŭ " gallery (famous contemporary art center created at the place of a soviet bottle recycling point). Also, we'll visit hippies' meeting point in the park where band's rehearsals on the trees used to be. Then we'll see the place of an unexpected football match (hippies vs. metal heads) happened in 1986, the point of "Mroja" ("N. R. M. ", famous belarusian band) first open-air performing, KGB's radio tower to muffle foreign radio waves, a hippie Slava Maksakaŭ's assassination's place (the incident evoked a big meeting called by Radio Liberty as the first anti soviet demonstration in USSR).
We'll finish with Viktor Tsoy's (Russian rock-star) memorial wall and an ambient old industrial Kastryčnickaja street famous by its giant graffiti, hipsters' cafes and modern happening zones. . .

we could combine this tour with sightseeing city tour making the duration longer, if needed (ask me about customized tour!)

Please note: Due to OFAC sanctions against my country, 100% of the tour cost is payable in cash to me at the start of the tour. Also, due to local laws, payment must be in our local currency, Belarusian New Rubles (BYN). If you have any questions about this, do not hesitate into contact me through "Ask a Question."
