Europe on a Shoestring - Belarus (Chapter)
This is the Belarus chapter from Lonely Planet's Europe on a Shoestring guidebook.
The isolation of this little-visited country is at the heart of its appeal. Outside the monumental Stalinist capital of Minsk, Belarus offers a simple yet pleasing landscape of cornflower fields, thick forests and picturesque villages.
