This is a story of a beauty and a beast, the story of an inexplicable love of the rich and well-born count Karal Hutten-Czapski (1860-1904) for provincial and untended city of Minsk. He originated from a nobel rich family of the Hutten-Czapskis with old german roots, studied in Petersburg and Germany, spoke polish, but he became a passionate of Minsk, devoting all his life to the city at the post of city's governor. Thanks to him, Minsk arised. At the period of his governing electric lights appeared here as well as municipal transport, homeless shelters, charitable pawnshops, cycle paths with bicycle rental in the city park; the urban water supply system became more perfect and they already created the project of the urban sewerage for Czapski's own money, while he was dreaming about the schools accessible for all the children... We could list Czapski's deals for a long time, not missing the fact he owned the oldest Minsk brewery that survived, also we could talk a lot about nice places of Minsk related to the hero but... don't you think it's better to go for the tour?
Sites: Trajeckaje pradmiescie (Trinity suburb), Czapski's brewery, memorial house of the Ist Russian socialist democratic party's meetings, Governor's garden, "Boy with swan" fountain (1874), New town, Minsk Bishop's residence, the first Minsk theatre, the first city library, old Bernardine st. (a part of municipal horse-drawn tram route) etc. After the tour you could visit the museum and workshop of “Alivaryja” brewery (at a cost).
