Belarus is a landlocked country in Eastern Europe and borders Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Lithuania and Latvia. It has an area of 207,600 square kilometers and a population of 9.5 million people. The official language is Belarusian, but many people also speak Russian.

When visiting Belarus, the largest cities to explore are Minsk (the capital city), Brest, Grodno, Vitebsk and Gomel. Minsk houses some of the country’s most popular attractions such as Independence Square and its grandiose St. Petersburg-style buildings. The Mir Castle Complex, the Niasvizh Palace and the Bialowieza Forest are must-see destinations.

The climate in Belarus is continental with cold winters and warm summers. The best time to visit is from May to September when temperatures are milder and there is less rainfall.

Belarusian cuisine is diverse and hearty, featuring dishes such as draniki (potato pancakes) or machanka (pork stew). You can also try the local vodka or craft beer.

Belarus is relatively inexpensive to visit compared to other European countries. The currency is the Belarusian Ruble (BYN) and the phone code is +375.

To sum up, Belarus offers plenty of interesting sights and experiences for travellers looking for an off-the-beaten-path destination!
