in Minsk

It's known as a place where you can drown your sorrows with BYN1.80 vodka shots – and therein lies its beauty. While models and hipsters crash the Old Town, real people with real problems hit the ground floor of this department store on Minsk's main drag. Order from the cashier and take a window seat.

A half-litre of draught beer costs a silly BYN1.70.
