STROLLING

Even the greatest cities studded with historical heritage sights are a tough test for kids: children will most definitely get bored quickly and demand entertainment. Don’t expect them to observe adoringly Stalin’s Neo-Renaissance style of the buildings in Niezaliežnasci Avenue or the Gothic Revival style of the Red Church.

The Jakub Kolas Monument

The Jakub Kolas Monument
The Monument to a poet Jakub Kolas in the square named after him always attracts kids. Even if they don’t know a single verse from Kolas’s poems, it is fun to sit on his big boot or climb the heads of the heroes of his poems that are standing nearby. In almost every backyard in Minsk, you can easily find a playground with a slide and a swing – often steel-made and reminiscent of the childhood in the Soviet times. However, the city has recently acted to refurbish the playgrounds with modern  - and more attractive - equipment for kids. Just trust your gut and your child’s sharp eye that will spot everything he or she needs in the narrowest gap between houses. Let your kid spend half an hour swinging and climbing while you can take a breather on a bench before proceeding to explore the city.

Čaliuskincaŭ Park

There is a playground for children deep into Čaliuskincaŭ Park (Park Čaliuskincaŭ Metro station), but to get there you have to deal with the challenge of passing through an amusement arcade – not every kid will trade a carousel, track rides, bumper cars or a rollercoaster for slides and swings.

Gorky Park

Gorky Park
If your kid cannot live without amusement rides, it might be a good idea to visit Gorky Park (Plošča Pieramohi Metro station) first. It boasts a designated area in front of Planetarium which allows even two-year-olds to enjoy rides on a miniature swing chain or mini-Ferris wheel. Pricewise, you will be charged mini-fares – a big difference from regular fare for adults.
