Today, Minsk is a city with wide streets. The ancient and modern architectural ensembles, fountains, shaded parks and green boulevards represent assets that make it one of the best cities of former Soviet Union.

The introduction of railway lines in the second half of the 19th century contributed significantly to the city’s growth. All the trains coming from Moscow and St. Petersburg travelling to Western Europe cross Orsha.
