Roofs of Minsk buildings offer spectacular views

You can see almost the entire city from some roofs. There are people who take a great interest in this. They are called roofers. Through their camera we saw totally new Minsk.

Dmitry Bakhir, roofer:
We can see two little towers: one of the KGB and the other with famous clock brought from Germany. There is also a famous bell. We can observe the Dinamo stadium, too.

Yegor Shtriker, roofer:
We can see Victory Square. The National Library is over there. It is actually visible from any point in the city.

Every roof is like a new discovery. Roofers meet like-minded people and find sources of inspiration. They have their special philosophy.

Roofers value the top of the hotel "Belarus" with views of the Trinity Suburb and the tallest skyscraper with a panoramic view of the Upper Town.

The roof of the new 13-story International Relations Faculty building (Belarusian State University) is another attraction for the youth.

Everyone has their own roofing. This movement is actively developing and more and more talented photoreports appear.

Yegor Shtriker, roofer:
I love my city and I am just trying to share it with people. It’s the beauty that they can’t see because of their daily routine.

Sometimes roofing brings a great number of surprises. Roofers find things ordinary people cannot see like secret towers at the top of buildings, interesting mechanisms and even Einstein's formulae inscribed on walls.

Valeria Kamelyagina, roofer:
Houses along the waterfront offer spectacular panoramic views of the city.

Every roofer has some favorite buildings. Yegor Shtriker was so fascinated by Minsk that he decided to make a video about Minsk in a time-lapse mode. Everything is shot from unusual angles.

Yegor Stricker, roofer:
You can see almost the entire city there, from sleeping areas to the center. I shot both during the day and at night.

The final point of our excursion is the Maksim Tank State Pedagogical University. We can see the main avenue and Independence Square from here.

In a flash, you can see the Music Theater, Piotr and Pavel Church, banks of the Svisloch River and inner yards of the central avenue.

Yegor Shtriker, roofer:
I would like more observation decks to appear in the capital so that anyone can enjoy these awesome views that we see every day.

Valeria Kamelyagina, roofer:
It would be interesting to do an exhibition of the best photos because most of them are truly unique.
