What I love about Minsk
Minsk isn't necessarily a city one CAN love. It's more the kind of city one can find "interesting". Having lived in Prague for over 15 years and traveled throughout most of former Communist countries in the region it is especially so. The Baltic States in particular share a lot of history with Belarus. The thing that makes Minsk, and Belarus as a whole, interesting is that it's a "what if" for all its neighbors.
