Dear friends,

This page contains our efforts to gather all useful information for those planning a trip to Belarus. The purpose of it is to give you a friendly practical advice on traveling across Belarus. If you never visited ex-socialist countries you may find that the official foreign tourism system is reasonably comfortable but extremely expensive. Traveling on your own could be more fun but risky if you are not acquainted with customs, especially nowadays when the state is weak and corrupted. But Belarus is probably the safest place to go when choosing between former Soviet republics.

This file is a part of the Virtual Guide to Belarus - a collaborative project of Belarusian scientists and professionals  abroad. VG brings you the most extensive compilation of the information about Belarus on the Web.
