Had a quick visit, mass was on. Got to hear an incredible signer while glancing at the beautiful interior. At this time the outside is being renovated, but you can still go in.

The church would probably have looked a lot better if it wasn't under construction but the inside was still nice.

The church is located in the vicinity of the Independence Square. The interior has been completely restored and the church is now an important center of religious, cultural and social life in Minsk

A lovely church, but nothing special inside ! Currently under renovation if planning to see it from outside it could be a wasted trip !

Very nice church under renovation. Worth a look inside although a service was starting during our visit.

Visited in January 2018- such a shame as this was one of the sights I was most looking forward to, but the whole church was surrounded in a great fence and scaffolding.
