Belarus Travel Tips

Eastern Europe’s landlocked cousin, Belarus may seem like a peculiar destination.  The country, which has been called Europe’s last dictatorship, avoids assimilation with the European Union and maintains roots in its Soviet past.  In fact, a visit to Belarus provides a glimpse of what life was like before the collapse of the Soviet Union.  In most parts of the country, travelers won’t find a culture focused on the internet or advertising; instead, they’ll find a nation that proudly maintains its isolation.

The modern capital, Minsk, is an intriguing exception.  Here, travelers will find a cosmopolitan city with international restaurants and cultural offerings. Dominant Stalinist architecture is punctuated by interesting highlights including the Baroque Church of St. Peter and St. Paul, the Carmelite Church of St. Theresa and the Gates of Dawn.
