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. . .
It is a simple city tour, which lasts approx. 3 hrs. Mostly, the route is in the city center. We could make 1-2 coffee breaks on the way.
