  • Required to attend during flowering lilac, very bright and you can see the different varieties, as well as in the autumn, when the garden is full of red-yellow leaves, and that's another beauty. Not everyone knows, but there is limonarij, where citrus is grown. It's small, but it smells there unrealistic. Tickets need to be purchased separately at the box office

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.
