There are very few places left where it is still possible to experience a truly authentic taste of the Soviet era. Fortunately not only is Belarus one such place, it’s also convenient and easy to visit with no visa required on entry. This brand new small group tour is based in the capital, Minsk, but takes excursions out to explore more of the country. Day-trips include visits the castles of Mir and Niesvizh, as well as the military complex Stalin’s Line.
Upon arrival in this fascinating country, you will immediately notice the (refreshing) lack of advertising hoardings; many 60’s apartment tower blocks and clean, wide boulevards with neat flowerbeds. Minsk also feels a very safe place to wander the streets at any time of day.
