Loshyca Manor

Minsk, Belarus

Loshyca manor-park complex represents the manor style from the latter 19th century. The first manor appeared here in the middle of the 16th century. The current manor house was built by Evstafiy Liubansky in 1880. It is a monument of architecture of a modernist style. The complex includes a house-manor, a chapel, a house-keeper house, a watermill, a distillery, economic constructions, and a picturesque park. These are magnificent larches, oaks, pines, the exotic trees existing in the single copy. The main lime avenue (from Mayakovsky street) leads to the center of the manor. The surrounding landscape is extraordinary beautiful. The heights open wide view onto green meadows, a twisting small river, breakages and lowlands with tiny rushy marshes. On the territory of the park there is the horse club, the green market with hothouses. Up till 2001 there was a branch of the National art museum in the manor. Nowadays the manor is being restored.

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
