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. Minsk is in Belarus. Take a look at our Belarus trip maker site to refine the details of your trip to Minsk.
