I found a black and white photo in a book about old Minsk and decided to give it a color in the spirit of the French impressionists.
The current Karl Marx Street, which runs parallel to the capital's Independence Avenue, was “born” at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Initially, the street was given a beautiful name — Podgornaya. Perhaps they took into account geographical features. Straight like an arrow in its main part, it seemed to pierce the center of the so-called “Uzvyshsha”, striving in the west to the Vilensky railway station, and in the east to the Svisloch River.
