c) Какая из достопримечательностей могла бы стать символом Минска? Что, по вашему мнению, является символом Минска?
То my mind of all the sights above the Trinity Suburb could be a symbol of Minsk, because it is one of the oldest and most beautiful parts of Minsk. But in general I think that the symbol of Minsk is the Pobeda Square with its Pobeda monument. I think the square and the monument are very beautiful and they represent the heroic past of the city.

Были ли вы когда-нибудь в местах, которые упоминаются в тексте? Согласны ли вы с тем, что белорусы — трудолюбивые, добрые и гостеприимные люди? Что является символом вашего города или деревни?
Yes, I have. I live in Minsk and I have been to many places of interest mentioned in the text. My friends and I like to spend our spare time in Cheluskintsy and Gorky Park. I live not far from the Botanical Garden and go fora walk there from time to time. When I was a child, I liked going to the circus a lot. I’ve been in Pobeda Square too. My parents take me to the Opera and Ballet theatre often.
I use Minsk underground to get to school every day.
