Our Thoughts

Have you ever wondered what life might have been like in the Soviet Union? Do you think you missed your chance to find out? Come to Belarus.

If you're interested in returning to life in the Soviet Union, no place preserves it better than Belarus. Little English is spoken - it's much more difficult for English speaking travelers here than other parts of Eastern Europe. Belarus itself remains a Socialist Republic. Privatization has ceased, most of the state runs on subsidies, employment is almost nonexistent - people have jobs but the pay is terrible, the average monthly wage is $33 and the minimum wage is $4 per month.

There doesn't seem to be much free choice in Belarus except for beer, which comes in a bewildering variety.

Highlight: Minsk has personality because it has no personality.
