Why locals love it

This place isn't your typical flower garden. It's home to three peculiar sculptures including 'Girl With An Umbrella', 'Minsk Lady' and 'Smoking Man'. There are some quirky superstitions associated with these beautiful sculptures.

Why you should visit it

If you place a cigarette between the fingers of the 'Smoking Man', you will supposedly have good luck for the entire day. And if you sit near the 'Minsk Lady' and secretly touch her knee, you'll soon find a girlfriend.

Special tip

You don't believe in superstitions? Perhaps you should give it a try! ;)
