DESTINATION, BELARUS

Belarus is a unique destination that offers an enticing mix of attractions for those seeking a country free from the traps of modern tourism.

You will find echoes of its chequered history at every turn, whether in the monumental architecture of Minsk, the capital of Belarus, or the sobering National Memorial complex at Khatyn.

But look deeper and you will discover - besides a wealth of historical sites, - a hospitable country with romantic villages, primeval forests and extremely friendly culture awaiting visitors. 

 

Belarus is an easy destination to include on your trip to Europe. It is located so close to the rest of Europe and the West.  
 

Until the 20th century, the lands of present day Belarus belonged to several countries, including the Principality of Polotsk, the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth, and the Russian Empire.

Later Belarus became a founding constituent republic of the Soviet Union and was renamed as the Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic (BSSR).

The nation and its territory were devastated in World War II, during which Belarus lost about a third of its population and more than half of its economic resources.

The republic was redeveloped in the post-war years. In 1945, the Belorussian SSR became a founding member of the United Nations, a
long with the Soviet Union and the Ukrainian SSR.

Belarus declared its independence on 25 August 1991. In 2000, Belarus and Russia signed a treaty for greater cooperation, with some hints of forming a Union State
