NIKITA

SYSTEMS ARCHITECT

Moved to Minsk from Moscow

“It’s amazing how I can drive across the entire city in 20-25 minutes. Sure, after Moscow Minsk feels like a small city, but I can’t say that it’s drastically different here. I guess the main difference is the pace of life. Minsk somehow reminds me of an average American city, with low-rise buildings and wide streets.”
