As an administrative and territorial entity of the city of Minsk, Leninsky District was founded by the Decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the BSSR of April 17, 1951 due to downsizing the three districts of the capital.
However the history of the area actually goes back to earlier time. The date of birth of the district can rightfully be attributed to the appearance of a railway-men’s settlement in Minsk (19 century). Large factories and plants, workshops, warehouses, passenger and freight trains gave the area an image of a business capitalist town. Among them: "Energy" ironworks, two yeast-distillery plants (one of them – Yeast plant).
At present the district is rapidly developing and growing, changing its appearance, improving infrastructure of its social sphere. Today Leninsky District is a rather large and considerable part of our capital.
Leninsky District occupies the area of over 2.6 thousand hectares. The population of this district is more than 211 thousand people.
One fifth of the territory of Leninsky District is occupied by parks, squares, avenues and boulevards, artificial and natural reservoirs. The real pride of the district is Loshitsky Park which is one of the oldest parks in the capital. No less picturesque corner in the capital is the Park named after Grekova.
