Belarus has one of the largest developed urban areas in all of Europe. Over 70% of the nation’s population lives within the boundaries of a city and 4 out of 5 people you’ll meet in Belarus are native to the area.

Yet despite having an open rural area to explore, this country is ranked second-to-last when it comes to tourism opportunities. Now is the time to change that and here are some of the things that you can expect during your stay.

The Last Soviet Republic?

There is a lot of negative energy that comes up when one begins to discuss a visit to Belarus. Forget everything you may have heard. Museums that feature this nation’s role in the Great Patriotic War, which is World War II, offer visitors a different perspective. For those who love art, there are multiple museums dedicated to the likes of Chagall. Many museums are even open air in nature, allowing you to freely explore on a sunny day.

Unique Castles That You Won’t Want To Miss

Nyasvizh and Mir both offer castles to explore that are each part of a larger complex that will let you get a feeling of what history has taught the people of this beautiful nation. With influences that are very Gothic in some aspects, yet still quite Russian in design and atmosphere, you will find that these heritage centers are more than just landmarks. They are works of art in their own right.

You Will Love the National Parks

One of the oldest wildlife reserves in all of Europe can be found at the Belavezhskaya Pushcha National Park. With 50+ different species of mammals, including European Bison, calling this park their home, you will also find areas that are covered in lakes and rivers. Fishing and other water sports are widely available, as are hiking, biking, or bird-watching.
