The Belarusian Behomoth

"It looks like it should be a mausoleum," my Belarusian friend, Ivan, quipped as we walked through Minsk. Situated smack in the center of Belarusian capital, the Palace of the Republic is no mausoleum (but who knows after mustached strongman/president-for-life Alexander Lukashenko dies). It's a theater and performance center. And a very ugly one at that.
