    The reason the museum visit was my gift certificate for airplane flight. While waited our time walked through the Museum. The Museum is a village with houses, furnishings, utensils 19 beg. 20 century. Objects and homes pretty much walking can be long. There is a school, a church and two mills, one broken. Presented at home different inhabitants it is the fishermen, spinners, blacksmiths and Miller and t. d. Impressed some items of furniture as cabinet made from a single trunk. I especially want to mention the thatched roofs! There is a pub (the Café where you can eat national Dishes, but during our visit there was a wedding at the entrance of the village there is a kiosk with pancakes, delicious and not young. With cheese and ham for 3.5 p, with a sweet filling of 2 b. Only lacks the illumination of exhibits in the homes of the little window and when we went to the street, where the bright sun, in rooms where the entrance is closed, and only a glimpse can be, nothing really to see it. I advise any imitation of candles. In General, you can bring back interesting guests from other countries and not far from Minsk, we at the bike arrived. Now about the flight, the guys at the entrance to the Museum, not to notice. My husband was pleased. The flight was adrenaline 15 min, the only thing that waited until the wind dies down. Impressions of the sea. For a small additional fee your flight will take off on go-Pro 5 b. Price.

    To ride in an open-air museum was interesting and meaningful at the entrance take Service Guide (this is a mandatory condition for those wishing to fill this day not only images in memory, but also information). For the company from two families it went a fraction of a penny, but you won't regret it for a second. It is jekspursovod draws your attention to details and answers all your questions and they are born constantly. You will learn a lot. After the tour, which lasts about 1.5-2 hours you will have free time for a commemorative photo, walks on the remaining territory of the Museum and a meal. By the way, local cuisine in the "Tavern" is very original, delicious, nicely served (we recommend to taste the bread and kvass of own production, potato pancakes and the wizards in the advertisement did not need, they are good). There is a possibility to accommodate both the main building and in tents outside. There is a playground. There are only two, in my opinion, the minus sign in this place: 1. Not showing ancient crafts (and I would like to see in the blacksmith, Potter, like sausages and products from milk as wove/spun, valenki rides). People are interested and confident that the price for democratic was in demand (at least the European example self documenting this, people are buying, anywhere else will not be able to purchase). 2. Does not provide normal public toilets (that what we saw was indescribable). Toilet in the classic its submission is only at the entrance to the Museum and in the tavern (which is on the territory of 150 HECTARES). But overall a good place. Back and in no time!

    Belarus as it used to be. When I look at these houses I remember my grandparents as they had exact same houses and the interior as well. A very good place to understand Belarusian culture and heritage better. Best with a guide

    Surrounded by beautiful landscape this place helps to understand the life of simple belarusians, to feel the mentality and character of the nation. Quiet place, the entrance fee is about 5 dollars. Definitely worth visiting.

    A great place with a range of exhibits on different natural settings. There's also a nice restaurant specialising in Belarusian cuisine.

Where to stay in Minsk

The funky town of Minsk is flooded with cool hotels and chic apartments to rent, many of which can be quite luxurious. Renting an apartment is a great option--and if you are traveling with a group, you can keep the cost per person down. While bed and breakfasts and guesthouses are not quite as popular in this city, you can find affordable lodging at the nice but less expensive hotels that may sacrifice location or amenities. 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.
