A month ago I have been in Minsk (Belarus).
If you dream about Time Machine to come to the Soviet times welcome to Minsk. There are lot of artifacts from USSR in the city. But there are also a lot of modern urban elements. Minsk authorities take care of it.
Ok, let talk about subj.
The most famous touristic map you can buy – the map with normal and axonometry view. (I got the same kind of map from Kiev before).
There is a tourist information kiosk in the center of the city.
If you don`t know Russian/Belarusian language you will get lost. There is no latin characters for labels in most places. Like in this touristic map too.
I think old style signs better than new one.
It looks funny, sign was designed at 80`s I think
The Minsk public transport system consists of subway (Minsk metro), buses and tramways.
There is a map of tramway routes inside the wagons. I love useful transit maps wich using color coding for the separate routes. It is a good way to make routes map clear. Unfortunately not all transit maps authors takes care about that. There is color coding helps to follow the route on the map, but colors might be more different.
Finally, I want to say about Minsk: I liked it.
