Minsk Sea – Relax any season

The "Minsk Sea" is an artifical reservoir filled up in 1956. My favorite way to get there is by cycling. It's amazing in summer as well as winter...

New Bor – The place for me

"New Bor" in Minsk is a newly built district that doesn't feel like Minsk at all! I love how the smaller, newer buildings create a sense of community...

Yo! Sushi – Japanese place

"Yo!Sushi" in Minsk brings back to me memories from Japan and 'refills' the Japanese mood inside of me. I like the food, the decoration, the conveyor belt!

About me

About me
I'm a 100% T-shaped person: I can't stick to one thing for a long-long time, I need to explore a few different things in parallel, and preferably right now.
Currently, I'm working as a data scientist in an IT company and I really enjoy it! The world is full of data that needs to be explored. So I'm traveling as much as I can, taking pictures and sharing my experience on social media.

Why Minsk
I've been living here my whole life (except for a year of study in Budapest!). Also, it's a calm and green enough city with a long "life story". I like exploring the city center and always try to look at it with the eyes of a tourist, and I always find new details that were previously unknown to me.

Lots of places here contain the puzzle pieces of my life as memories, but Minsk has changed so much during the last few years, that I'm discovering it again. I love showing my favorite places in the city to people I've met here via Couchsurfing.

Also, the city offers a space for ideas, projects and the development of social initiatives. When I'm not traveling, I like to take part in events as a volunteer: festivals, educational events, meetups and professional conferences. Hope to see you in Minsk soon!
