To many, Belarus conjures up images of the former Soviet Union - a communist regime, concrete blocks and tractor factories...OK, so some of these characteristics do still exist and some are even worthy attractions in themselves, but don’t be deceived. There’s a whole lot more to Belarus.
Belarus is quirky and full of contrasts. Cities are packed with high-rise Soviet blocks but as you venture in to the countryside you’ll discover picturesque wooden houses with blooming gardens and home-grown produce. Look out for beautiful medieval castles in various states of repair. Some have been abandoned to nature, whilst others (like Mir Castle) have been preserved in all their glory, earning their status as recognised UNESCO World Heritage sites.
For those with an open mind, Belarus provides much to see and do. Appreciate the history, be sensitive to the present situation and be willing to join in the local entertainment. You’ll have no regrets!
Belarus is on the brink of change, there's no other place in Europe like it. See it in all its unique glory now.Our Top Belarus Tours
