Šabany and Free Economic Zone “Minsk”


The Šabany residential area on the outskirts of the city has a somewhat doubtful reputation as a neighborhood where getting into a trouble may be easier than in the rest of the city. The remoteness of this neighborhood may have played the role in that: residential quarters are separated from the city by a vast industrial area that includes an aeration station, a waste-processing plant, a precast factory and the free economic zone “Minsk”. The latter accommodates numerous warehouses, office buildings and trade centers.
