Minsk Travel Guide: 454 reviews and 1,150 photos

I visit Belarus trough program call "Introduction to Eastern Europe" (Serbian Cyrillic: Упознајте Источну Европу, read: Upoznajte Istochnu Evropu). During my traveling for 17 days I visit, beside Belarus and Hungary, Poland, Lithuania and Russia. We spend about 5 hours on Latvia-Russian borders. The organizers was organization call Russian-Serbian friendship "Brotherhood" (Serbian Cyrillic: Руско-српско пријатељство "Братство") and we have a help from Russian Embassy in Bosnia and Herzegovina. We travel by bus (44 people) and even entry in all daily newspapers because nothing like that happens before.
This all experience cost me 400 euros (including two visas that cost me a 80 euros). We sleep in hostels or travel by nights. The food is on our expense. Addiction cost was a organized tour guide - in total 80 euros and tickets for museums and other touristic attraction (lower prices when you use a discount benefit card like ISIC and ITIC).

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Big, clean city and lower prices
  • Cons:take care yourself when you in the crowd, visa needed
  • In a nutshell:Worth to visit

    I certainly agree about exploring these types of places best on foot. All manner of things are seen that everyone else misses.

      Walking and taking lots of photos is how I mostly spend time on travel.

    Great overview of Minsk, Aleksandra! I've never been there since Soviet times though we're driving around it's ring by car every year on the way to and back from Germany. Nevertheless we can't find time to visit it again...

    Interesting information - I'd have liked to have visited Minsk during my trips to the Ukraine, but the visa requirement got in the way...
