Travel to Belarus and step back in time. Belarus is a post Soviet enclave that has moved less slowly into its own than other post USSR countries. What that means for travelers is being able to visit a land that still has a communist era feel, featuring less advertising, grafitti and the like. You can travel all over the country including the capital of Minsk and find corners and neighborhoods that seem not to be of the present day. That can be a genuine delight for those who not only want to have an adventure visiting new lands but also another time.
Minsk is the beautiful capital of Belarus, which is an ancient city, and the tourists flock here to get a good slice of its medieval past. It is mentioned in the Medieval Chronicles that date back almost a thousand years. The city is situated on the Svislach and Nyamiha rivers in a picturesque setting, which used to be an ancient trade route that connected the Black Sea to the Baltic Sea.
If you have at least a day to spare in this city, you should visit Belarusian National Arts Museum – a haven for art lovers. This museum has the largest collection of artifacts in the country – 27,000 pieces of art! It is located right in the middle of the city on Lenin Road.
The city is a perfect blend of old meets new. Minsk has vibrant nightlife with a number of clubs, discotheques, bars and casinos.Read more about Minsk…
