Photo and description
Trinity Suburb of Minsk is undoubtedly the most beautiful urban area not only of the capital, but of the whole of Belarus. It is located on the left bank of the Svisloch River. The name Trinity Suburb comes from the Trinity Church, once founded by King Jagiello.
The construction of the Trinity Suburb (Trinity Hill) began in the XII century. Medieval Minsk grew into suburbs. The richer public settled in the Trinity Suburb. In the XIV-XV centuries, there was even the administrative center of the city. After obtaining the Magdeburg Rights and the construction of the town hall, Trinity Suburb lost its status as the main district of Minsk.
In the 16th-17th centuries, earthen ramparts and ditches filled with water were poured around the Trinity Suburb. The area has acquired the status of an important defensive fortified site.
Until the 19th century, Trinity Suburb was considered a suburb of Minsk, and the houses in it were wooden. In the 19th century, the suburb entered the city limits. Its center was considered to be the Troitsky Market, on the site of which the Opera House and the Square are now built.
The Trinity Suburb acquired its present form thanks to the strongest fire in 1809, when all the wooden buildings burned down. The mayors decided to demolish the remains of the foundations and build new city quarters in accordance with the canons of classical building, when the streets had to intersect at right angles, forming rectangular quarters. The houses were adjacent to each other, forming a single facade. The high tiled roofs of houses with attics and attics gave the Trinity suburb a unique flavor.
Now the Trinity Suburb has been reconstructed, repaired and landscaped. It looks attractive at any time of the year, at any time of the day and in any weather, thanks to the famous tiled roofs, multi-colored facades and modern dynamic lighting (changing colors like dancing fountains).
