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.

  • One should know old BelarusIan way of life. It's part of our history. Such places are worth visiting.
  • 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
  • beatiful place
  • 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.
