Interesting walking tour with information about history of Minsk (where my grandparents were born), and landmarks of Upper Town of Liberty Square. Tanya is very knowledgeable, and complemented the tour with archive images and music while she was interacting and answering chat questions. Times flied and now I am waiting for a second part. Thank you, Tanya!
