City Gates (Брама ў горад)3
Why locals love it
These two 11 storey buildings resemble the towers of an ancient castle. They are powerful structures that mark the entrance to the city. One of the towers has a huge clock – it's the biggest clock in the republic.
Why you should visit it
The minute hand is two metres long and the clock itself weighs 300 kilos. If you look closely at the towers you'll notice several sculptures on them.
Believe it or not, people actually live in the towers.
