About Belarus

Belarus has suddenly emerged as one of Europe’s ‘it’ destinations, in spite of long regarded by travelers as little more than a curiosity. That rise is connected with simplified visa requirements, development art and cafe scene, and hospitable locals. 

Minsk is where you must arrive and depart to take advantage of a new 30-day visa-free regime. The capital has a pulsing nightlife, excellent museums and an impressive ensemble of Stalin-era architecture (Soviet Union period). Minsk has also become a hub for global summits and sporting events such as the 2019 European Games. Elsewhere, the western cities of Brest and Hrodna are Europeanised nooks, while around the Belarusian heartland you’ll turn up ancient castles and national parks where rare zubr (European bison) roam.
