Treacle in Minsk

139treacle minsk

\r\nI'm having a lovely time here in Belarus.  We've now travelled on over to Minsk, which is the capital city and the largest city in Belarus.  The earliest reference to Minsk was in the 11th century when it was just a city in the principality of Polotsk, then it bacme part of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, then it was part of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, then it was annexed by Russia and then it was the capital of the Byelorussian Soviet Republic and finally just part of Belarus in 1991. Phew, lots of history!  You can see me here in front of the ballet and opera house, in the hotel lobby and finally at the hotel Lido - nice.  More adventures soon!
