Minsk, Belarus

There are several great places to visit in Belarus, but you will likely find yourself in the capital city, Minsk, at some point when you’re there.

There is a lot of things to do in Minsk for all types of travelers. During the warmer months, green parks line the city and you can find people paddle-boating or enjoying cotton candy in them. During the winter, you will find several museums, cafes, and bars that will keep you occupied and warm. Oppulent Soviet-era architecture is everpresent and the streets are large, pretty walkable, and clean. There is also a metro system that connects the city if you want to forego walking.

Minsk is also known for its parks and gardens, so don’t miss a trip to the Gorky Central Children’s Park that features fairground rides as well as an observation wheel that provides stunning views over the city. Dive into Belarusian history at the National History Museum, or take in the cultural sights at the National Art Museum.
