Always the First
Minsk’s Palace of Sports marks its jubilee
The unique construction that has become the main arena for sporting events and concerts was built 40 years ago. It was a very bold plan — to seat 6,000 people that would face one side under one gigantic roof. The Palace of Sports remains one of the largest halls in Minsk, and it will always remain the first, however large and modern the new buildings may be. After repairs the palace will stand for another 40 years, specialists believe.
