Minsk is actively preparing for the New Year. The windows of the main stores have already been festively decorated. Some stores feature original design. In addition to bright garlands and colorful Christmas trees, Minsk residents will be presented with new paper installations that portray classic fairy tales. Soon, festive illumination will be turned on the central avenues and at some other locations of the capital. New Year's garlands will shine for Minsk residents and guests of the capital from December 15 to January 15.
