Minsk’s central railway station is in the area that was formerly considered to be out of town. The town’s boundaries ended just a few metres away from the railway station, what is today known as the Minsk Gates. The gates are two 11-storey towers, on the corners of five-floor apartments, that were built in 1953 under the reconstruction plan. The buildings follow the construction norms of the Stalin Empire. One of the towers houses a 100-year-old clock that was won over from the Germans. This is one of the largest and heaviest clocks in Europe. The perimeter of each tower is decorated with four sculptures. Each of these symbolises a worker, a famer, an engineer, and a soldier. The towers were designed by the Russian architect, Boris Rubanenko. These structures have been printed on several postcards and stamps of Minsk.
