Victory Square, Minsk, Belarus
A great nightview of Victory Square with the Obelisk in Minsk was sent by Ludmila for the Postcrossing UK&Ireland x OC RR. Victory Square is the key landmark of Minsk, a main tourist attraction, newly weds go there to take their wedding picture, holiday parades pass this important site of the city. The Obelisk is crowned with a giant replica of the Order of Victory and at its base is the Sacred Sword of Victory. The monument is dedicated to the soldiers of the Soviet Union and Belarus.
