5 reasons why we love Belarus

We adore the eastern European country of Belarus. From its picturesque villages to its stunning landscapes of wide plains, lakes and unspoilt forests, the landlocked country has so much to offer as a great holiday destination.


Check out our top five reasons to love Belarus and try not to choose the thriving country as your next holiday destination!

1. A country steeped in history

Belarus is a brilliant destination for history-lovers. Located on the Dvina River, Polotsk, the oldest city in the country, is home to an ancient cathedral, fortress and convent. The city of Brest, also known as Brest-Litovsk, also boasts historical architecture worth exploring as well as a large number of national parks and nature reserves across the region.  The city’s landmark of the Brest HeroFortress‘ memorial complex is a popular attraction in particular.

2. Its buzzing capital

Minsk, the capital of Belarus, offers a fantastic day-out on your holiday. The capital is home to an array of beautiful churches, including the infamous 20th century neo-Romanesque Church of Saints Simon and Helena. The modern city of Minsk also offers a variety of museums and theatres, as well as the Modern National Library of Belarus, which provides brilliant views of the city from its open-air observation pad.

3)     Its renowned National Park

Belovezhskaya Pushcha National Park is a fantastic attraction and popular amongst many holidaymakers to Belarus, located 340 kilometres to the south-west of Minsk. The park is the largest forest in the lowlands of central Europe and boasts over 900 plants and 250 animals and birds – including many rare species. The park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, offering great walks and landscapes to admire along the way.

Belarus offers a magical castle attraction; its 16th century Mir Castle Complex, located in the town of Mir. The castle, which is another UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a renowned landmark in the country and a must-see on your Belarus break.
