Full description
Start with pickup from your hotel, and meet your guide who will take you through the centuries of Jewish history in Minsk. Minsk once had one of the largest Jewish communities in the Russian Empire, at one point comprising over 50% of the population.  Walk around one of the most famous Minsk Jewish quarters, the Rakovskoe suburb, which has survived to the present day. This area is known as a place of remembrance for the thousands of Belarusian Jews who died here during the Nazi occupation of the city. Many Jewish families were also deported to Western Europe, never to return. The memory of the Jewish community is kept alive to this day. See numerous memorials and burial sites, as well as the former Jewish women's college and the Minsk synagogue.
