Itinerary for Belarus: Minsk & Brest Private Tour

Belarus: Minsk & Brest Private Tour

This is the perfect add-on to a stay in Vilnius, Lithuania or as part of a Baltic tour. Take a trip to Belarus either flying in to Minsk, or from Vilnius by train, and visit the fascinating city of Minsk including a tour to Stalin Line military museum, then our driver & guide will escort you to Brest, sightseeing palaces and castles along the way. A night in Brest means you get to experience a smaller more provincial city, and visit the awesome Brest Fortress. On return to Minsk there is more sightseeing through Belarusian villages to see rural life. There is also the option to stay longer, tour more of Belarus or continue on to Poland as part of a longer tour.

Day 1 - Minsk

Our driver will meet you at the airport and drive you to your hotel in Minsk.

Minsk, the capital city, provides a fascinating experience. We assure you a city break to Minsk is one with a difference. Minsk has a small carefully restored old town, however much of the city is Stalinist style architecture cheered up here and there with parks and the river Svislach. Minsk is a bizarre city where the youth are reaching out to capitalism, but the state clings on to 'the good old days' of communism for its people, whether they like it or not. Friendly locals, a variety of restaurants and bars, fascinating museums, galleries, and top class ballet & opera make this an ideal city break destination. As the most Soviet city left in the world, visit Minsk now, before western consumerism takes over and it loses its quirky appeal.
 

Day 2 - Minsk

Tuesday Walking tour of Minsk (3 hours) & Stalin Line Private Tour
Our guide will meet you at the hotel and take you for a 3 hour walking tour of Minsk, you will see all the main sights. Depending on your arrival time the previous day, we suggest you use that first free afternoon to visit the Great Patriotic War Museum which is really very interesting and insightful. In the afternoon our driver and guide will take you out to visit Stalin Line, the fortifications along the former western border of the USSR.
 

Day 3 - Minsk to Brest

Depart Minsk for Brest visiting Mir Castle & Nesvizch Palace on the way
Today our driver and guide will take you on a tour down to Brest in southern Belarus. Enroute you will visit two UNESCO sites; Mir Castle and Nesvizch Palace. The journey through the Belarus countryside itself is very interesting and pretty. After visiting these impressive sites it's on to Brest for the evening.
 

Day 4 - Brest to Minsk

Visit Brest Fortress & drive back to Minsk visiting villages/monuments on the way
This morning after breakfast, a tour of the awesome Brest Fortress. Afterwards you will head back to Minsk but stopping to visit some villages and monuments along the way - this is a really interesting insight into rural life in Belarus away from the more tourist sights.
 

Day 5 - End of tour

Our driver will pick you up and drive you to the train station or airport - depending on where your travels take you next...

SUE & PAUL, TAILOR-MADE BELARUS TOUR, JUNE 2018


HATS OFF TO BALTIC HOLIDAYS. YOU GAVE US A TRIP OF A LIFETIME.

Our trip was superb, Philip. As you well know, before the trip I customized it quite a bit. Your team was terrific in accommodating that customization. The result was a unique and spectacular trip. I could go on at great length to tell you how much we enjoyed this trip but, instead, will save time by simply telling you that Denise and I have traveled quite extensively and we both agreed that this was one of our favorite trips ever. That is in large part due to your team'shard work before we landed and once we were 'in country'. The Baltics trip was the first time that we traveled on our own but used a tour company to help plan and then fully support the trip. You have now spoiled - and ruined - us. Hats off to Baltic Holidays. You gave us a trip of a lifetime.
