Mysterious and misunderstood, Belarus remains an enigma at the heart of Europe. Bradt's Belarus gives you all the information needed to get the best from this lost world. Explore Minsk, Belarus's modern city, built as a memorial to the glory of Soviet communism or step beyond the capital and find a wealth of riches that remain largely unknown to the outside world: the natural splendour of primeval forests, rivers and lakes; flora and fauna in abundance; stunning museums empty of visitors; rich culture and tradition; historical sites dating back to the Middle Ages; beautiful churches; Russian Orthodoxy and the genuine warmth of a people who believe that the rest of the world has either forgotten them or has no interest in their wellbeing.

  • The first and only English-language guidebook to Belarus
  • In and around Minsk, its numerous museums, parks, churches and historic sites
  • Explore the Belovezhskaya Pushcha forest – home to herds of European bison and other rare mammals
  • Personal anecdotes from the author's experience of living in the heart of a rural community
