Belarus often described as the last holdout of the Cold War and Europe’s ‘only Soviet State’ is populated by a resilient people, and Minsk, in particular, has an extremely vibrant and interesting nightlife. Belarus retains much of its charm, Soviet architecture and war memorials galore. This makes for an interesting mix which we will experience during the Belarus Tour, especially as it's young population has given rise to gentrification and artsy hispter neighbourhoods with an abundance of cafes and the odd microbrewery.

Those who have travelled with us to destinations like North Korea and Turkmenistan have drawn similarities with Belarus. The streets are spotless and it’s extremely safe for foreign visitors. There is little advertising to be seen and supermarkets, for example, are generally numbered rather than named. It ticks all the boxes for an unusual travel experience, but it seems it is the warmness and charm of the locals that keeps bringing us back. With limited economic development in the country comparatively speaking, much of the countryside, lakes, rivers and forest are in pristine condition.
