5 reasons to visit Belarus
Still skeptical? Then it's time to remind once again why Belarus is one of the ideal countries for recreation.
Belarus has its sea. Beach holidays — are not only about countries with access to the sea. We have our own, native Zaslavskoe reservoir, and there are enough other beautiful reservoirs. On the Braslav Lakes and Naroch, for example, you can go diving, and on the Minsk Sea, you will be offered to sail on a yacht. And you can even take a real cruise, however, not on an ocean liner, but on a small motor ship.
Belarus has its own mountains. With winter approaching, Raubichi, Silichi and Logoisk are becoming more popular than ever. Here you will find everything you need for recreation, no worse than in the famous Bukovel and other ski resorts. Moreover, you will not have to take a PCR test and shake the bus for a day: everything is as close as possible to the capital of Belarus.
Belarus has its own Maldives. There are even several chalk quarries in Belarus, so named for the amazingly azure water. These amazing places are just asking for a shot!
There are castles and palaces in Belarus. Despite the devastating wars of the twentieth century, many architectural masterpieces remained intact and are now being actively restored. There are amazingly ancient residences of the princes and magnates of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania in our country, and castles with a more modest history, but they are all worthy of your attention.
Grandfather Frost, the local Santa Claus, lives in Belarus. And not only him! If you visit Belovezhskaya Pushcha, you will see there the main New Year's wizard, stately bison, and the magnificent nature of Belarus, which in itself is one of our iconic attractions.
Advice from VETLIVA: it doesn't matter when you are going to discover Belarus from the other side. In fact, there is plenty to do here at any time of the year. For example, in the fall, go to a health resort, and in the winter, take one of our routes.
