Belarus is the Eastern Europe’s outcast. Nestled at the edge of the region, Belarus seems determined to avoid an integration with the rest of the continent at all costs. Taking its lead from the Soviet Union rather than the European Union, this unfrequented dictatorship may seem like an odd choice for the travellers. However, the isolation of the country lies at the heart of the appeal. 

Though the rest of the Eastern Europe has charged recklessly into capitalism, Belarus offers a chance to visit Europe with minimal advertising and little or no graffiti or litter. In the exterior of the monumental Stalinist capital of Minsk, the city offers a simple yet scenic landscape of the picturesque villages, cornflower fields and thick forests. The country has 2 phenomenal national parks and is a home to the largest mammals of Europe, the European bison – zubr. While the tourists here will always be a subject of curiosity, they’ll also be on the receiving end of the genuine welcome and warm hospitality.

On the first glance, the tourists on holiday may not find Belarus to be the most exciting destination however if you give it a closer look, you’ll know that there is so many places to see and things to do, in this landlocked country which counts Lithuania, Ukraine, Poland, Latvia and Russia as its neighbours.
