A journey through history. An audio guide around Minsk was developed within the framework of the exhibition "Transport 100 Years Ago"


From September 29 at the Palace of Sports (Prospect Pobediteley, 4), Minsk residents and guests of the city can visit the street exhibition for free “Transport 100 years ago". Prior to this, the project was solemnly presented on Yakub Kolas Square, and then the exhibition will “move” to the Zavodskoy District to the Belarus department store.

The history of transport, "green" projects, movement during a pandemic, advice on how to switch to environmentally friendly transport, recommendations for traveling with children - the authors of the exhibition tried to make it both historical and modern.

The exposition consists of three blocks. In the first one, you can look at the origins of the birth of mobility in Minsk and find out what transport was like 100 years ago. The second block tells about "green" projects: existing eco-trails, the Green Cycle Ring cycle route, the idea of turning Nemiga Street into a pedestrian tourist zone. The third block is a photography exhibition that encourages the transition to sustainable modes of transport in times of physical distancing and provides advice for beginners.

Within the framework of the exhibition, the creators of the project developed audio guide, which takes you on a journey into the history of the origins of cycling and public transport. The excursion covers the city center from the metro station "Academy of Sciences" to the station. During a mini-trip to 17 interesting points, you can listen to interesting facts about buildings, sculptures, streets of the city and its inhabitants from different times.

Installation instructions audio guide can be downloaded using the QR code located at one of the exhibition stands. In order to use the audio guide, you need to install a free application on your phone and turn on GPS. After that, you can follow the route and listen to interesting content that will be played when you approach the points of the excursion.

Audio guide - an audio recording used for self-familiarization with objects on the route, made on the basis of the izi.TRAVEL mobile application. The audio guide uses GPS navigation, which automatically turns on sound when you approach a waypoint. The recording plays in the background, and you can use the phone however you want: take pictures, view the map, or otherwise.

The exhibition is timed to European Mobility Week - a series of environmental events that this year put an emphasis on promoting low-carbon modes of transport. EHM-2020 motto: “Choose what to drive on”.

The event was organized by the Minsk City Committee for Natural Resources and Environmental Protection.
