B E L A R U S

  • GlobeRovers Rating: 6 / 10
  • Buzz Line: "Sealed in a Soviet Time Capsule"
  • Eagle Eye: Declared itself sovereign from the USSR on 27th July 1990 and attained Independence in 1991. Since 1994 ruled by the communist iron fist of Alexander Lukashenko. Interesting to see life here, with many wonderful people! Minsk is one of the cleanest - and most Soviet - cities in the world where you can check out the resident circus or an opera or symphony in stately venues for as little as US$2
  • Hot Spots: Minsk and its culture, countryside and towns such as Grodna, Mir and Nyesvizh
  • The Low-down: Arranging private accommodation is key - everywhere in Belarus!
