Festive events


Minsk is celebrating its 950th anniversary in September.

The history of the city began in 1067, when troops of the Polotsk and Kiev Principalities fought on the banks of the Nemiga river. In the mid-13th century these lands became part of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, and in 1499 the city was granted the Magdeburg rights and Minsk residents received internal autonomy. To symbolize that, the City Hall was built in the Upper Market area (presently - Freedom Square). The public garden located nearby is a legendary place: Peter I and Nicholas II, French marshal Davout, Decembrist Nikita Muravyov once walked there. The city has many historical and cultural monuments, Independence Avenue being the most important of them. The Belarusian capital main highway had been rebuilt, extended, broadened and renamed 14 times. 

In early September, various events dedicated to the anniversary are taking place in the city. On September 9, a festive concert program featuring artistic teams will be organized near the Palace of Sports from noon to 11 pm. It will be accompanied by a festive fair and the Minsk Open Cup 2017 international strongman competition. A concert will also take place in the Upper Town, and on September 9 and 10, free walking tours around the Old City will start from here at 11 am, 3 pm and 5 pm. ‘Creative Works Gallery’ will be arranged near the Upper Town concert hall (Svobody Square, 23A) on September 10. Minsk Half Marathon is taking place on September 10, while the international aeronautics festival will be held on September 8 and 9 from 5 pm to 9 pm and on September 9 and 10 from 7 am to 9 am.
