2017 New Year Tree design in Minsk

Minsk authorities have shown examples of how they would decorate the Belarus capital for the New Year and what the main tree of the country will look like.

You can see the example in the pictures.

Works are to be completed by December 15. The rest of the city will be decorated by Catholic Christmas on December 25, so the city will appear in all its glory.

The main Christmas tree will be located in Oktabrskaya Square, decorated with toys made of light-dynamic panels and LED-based snowflakes.

Therefore, it will sparkle with lights in both daytime and at night. Such a system was used for the first time in the winter of 2016/2017.

This year a new technology will be used: flat toys with the 3D effect. These will appear on many city firs. Each tree will be decorated differently, toys will not be the same on each tree.

Decorations will reflect the motifs for the Belarusian state flag and ornament. Chizhovka Arena will be also decorated since it will host the XIV Christmas International Amateur Ice Hockey Tournament (read more about it here).
