Minsk is the capital and largest city in Belarus, situated on the Svislach and Nemiga rivers and in 2009 had a population of 1,836,808 people.

The earliest references to Minsk date to the 11th century (1067), when it was a provincial city within the principality of Polotsk. 

If you look at a list of 'who's who' from Minsk, you will see a lot of chess masters!  So my guess is, a lot of smart people live in Minsk  :D
