The Church of Saints Simon and Helena often called the Red Church is the most famous Catholic church in Minsk. It was founded in 1905, and its construction was funded by nobleman Edward Woynilowicz in the memory of his two children who died at an early age. In 1932 the church was closed and housed the State Polish Theatre of BSSR. Later on it was used as a film studio. After the war, the building housed the Film Centre and the Museum of Belarusian Cinema History. In 1990 the Red Church was returned to the Catholic Church. Near the church you can see the statue of Michael the Archangel piercing a snake, and the Nagasaki Bell monument.
