As the capital and largest city of Belarus, Minsk represents a cultural center full of churches, libraries, museums, and theatres. The influence of the Soviet Union is quite apparent here, as most of the city was built up during this regime (after being razed during World War II). Today, Minsk is the base of the Commonwealth of Independent States. The dozens of cafes, shops, bars, and restaurants can keep you occupied for hours in this clean and safe city. While Minsk is not a popular tourist destination, it likely¬†will give you the genuine Belarusian experience you are looking for. However, be aware that English is not widely spoken. Knowing some Russian phrases will be essential if you travel here. Whether you only want to go to Minsk, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly Belarus road trip planner.
