The Holy Spirit Cathedral in Minsk, Belarus is dedicated to the Holy Spirit. It is the central cathedral of the Belarusian Orthodox Church. The cathedral, located on Cyril and Methodius Street, dates back to 1633–1642, when the Bernardine monastery was built, at a time when the city was part of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth. The building was damaged by fire in 1741 and required the reconstruction of the entire monastery. There is also a Roman Catholic Cathedral in Minsk.
