Dreams and workdays of Traktarahorad:
walking tour around Minsk Tractor Works' settlement
Great history of exemplary socialist settlement mixed with little stories of its constructors and inhabitants in order to become an entire narrative.
Constructed first in the post-war Minsk by german prisoners of war and Belarusian villagers,
it became a symbol of Belarusian capital's rebirth, a symbol of giving back of “urbanity” of the Belarusians,
a model for constructing other soviet industrial settlements, nice and cosy home for a number of soviet families,
an ambient décor for motion picture filming.
All the seventy years of its crash workdays and celebrations are in the walking tour!
