Minsk is an amazing city and we invite you to get acquainted with it in an amazing way – on the retro bus of the 30s. These buses circulated through the Belarusian capital in the prewar and postwar period.
Oak benches, the sound of gear shifting, views of Minsk passing by behind sliding windows, and you feel like heroes of an old movie.
We drive through the most significant and interesting places in Minsk. Due to its small size, our bus can get to many interesting spots that are inaccessible to standard buses. At Kastrychnitskaya Street we make a small stop to take a walk, admire street art and take a photo in the retro atmosphere of the factories of the early 20th century.
The audio guide in Russian and English will introduce you to the history of the city, its interesting places and legends.
