The Highlights Of Belarus trip starts from and ends in Minsk. It is a sightseeing trip that takes 9 days taking you through Belovezhskaya Pushcha National Park, Brest and Minsk in Belarus. Highlights Of Belarus is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Castles, cathedrals, rich forests and soviet structures – Belarus is a diamond, shining with post-war intrigue. While much of the country has been shaped in some way by conflict, the result is a modern country where Soviet, Polish, Orthodox and Jewish influences meet in each city to create architectural wonderlands. In contrast, the sprawling medieval forests of Belovezhskaya Pushcha remain unravaged by man and just as full of curious history, riddled in the growth rings of the towering ancient oak trees. From marsh to metropolis, Belarus’ appeal lies in a tranquillity that needs to be experienced firsthand before it can be fully understood.

However, if you’d prefer not to share, a single room supplement is available at an additional charge. Please ask your travel consultant for more details.
