What attracts Russians to Belarus?

Belarusian sanatoriums have become a favorite vacation spot not only for local residents but also for foreigners. Vacationers appreciated the professionalism of doctors and staff, excellent medical equipment, comfortable buildings and modern entertainment programs.

Agritourism in Belarus is developing thanks to government programs. The owners are given benefits and loans to start their own businesses. The country has a huge number of various agro-estates: some specialize in folk crafts, others in growing plants, and others are focused on entertainment – in general, each has something to surprise guests. In the country, open days are held annually in the estates of different regions.
