  • 50 in the Museum exhibits. Very large portion not open inside. Part of the exhibits was closed at restovraciju. What was very much open and children 13 and 5, and her husband, and even me. Cool but a little.

  • A small but fine Museum. Many steam and diesel locomotives can be admired in this outdoor museum and viewed the part from the inside. Unfortunately very few explanations/texts. The painting of the locomotives could be done with somewhat greater care. Overall a beautiful Museum, one should however not too much time for this schedule.

  • An interesting Museum, children love it! It is a pity that some of the exhibits are on the restoration. The cost for adults is 2.5 USD.

Where to stay in Brest

While the city of Brest is still sizeable, it does'nt boast the abundance of accommodations that its big brother, Minsk, does. While lodging type is more or less limited to hotels, they vary in price and offerings. Hostels and a guesthouse or two provide some budget accommodation in and near the center. Most hotels and hostels will arrange to register you as a foreigner with the police. If you rent an apartment-style accommodation, make sure to check in advance whether or not your host will do so. Without registration, you can stay in Belarus for only five business days.
