The station square — the area in Minsk, adjacent to the station of railway station Minsk-passenger.
Except the railway station, on the square take place also: Tsentralny bus station, complex of buildings of the Belarusian state university, and also so-called "Gate of Minsk" — two 11-storeyed buildings towers on corners of 5-storeyed houses symmetrized to rather cross axis of the area (the station building — the street of Kirov).
The area started being formed in the 1870th when wooden pavilions of the passenger station of the Libavo-Romensky railroad (the Vilensky station) were constructed. In the 1890th on their place among mainly wooden building the brick building of the station is built. In 1940 it is reconstructed. In the same time works on area reconstruction were developed. According to the apt remark of the pupil architect Boris Rubanenko — the academician of architecture deserved the architect of Belarus Yury Gradov, "an entrance gate" became an invariable symbol of Minsk for the reason that the author of the project managed to feel and emphasize very important historical parallel: towers of the Station square accepted historical relay from traditional wooden towers of ancient Minsk Zamchishcha which too were in due time entrance gate. Both this architectural and historical continuity gave them special persuasiveness and appeal.
