Hey you, Minsk People! :)

Hi there =) Well, everything depends on the condition of the apartment and on its location. =)
You can find a very simple one-bedroom apartment for $120-130.
If you need just a room, not the whole apartment, you can find a place around $50-60 per month.
Of course, if you don't use the help of real estate agent. =)

jan Alons , Minsk, BLR, 2 months ago

One room will be around $65 not cheaper. We were just before involved in the search for my brother in law and found for him one room for $65 Be aware that the prices for "foreigners" will turn out considerably higher than what Agatha proposes (15 % more ) and one month needs in general to be paid in advance.
Good luck with your search Agata

Hi!
I am interested in taking russian language course in Minsk. Anyone knows a good and inexpensive school and the prices? Any recommendations?
Cheers

Sviatlana Shykhava , Minsk, BLR, 2 months ago

Hi!
I know that recently a course of russian language has started in Pushkin library , Minsk, Gicalo street, 4 , it is near to metro station Yakuba Kolasa, behind TSUM store (ЦУМ). This course is organised by community of voluntaries and it is free. But it cannot be called intensive, this course could be as a complementary to some intensive course, but may be it will be useful to you. The classes pass by Sundays at 16.00 h, on the 3rd floor of the library.

Hello everyone!!
Me and a some other Spanish will be visiting Minsk this weekend, me and other friend have already been in Minsk and as the weather will be good (at least it's what forecast says!XD) we want to visit a lake or some place to rest and swim!!!
In Lithuania the people go to the lakes that are close to the city, where Minsk citizens go??:D
Maybe someone want to join us, or we can join him/her and his/her friends! :)
Cheers!!!

Hi,

I am planning to visit Belarus this June and wil be starting my trip in 2 weeks and planning to arrive overland to Belarus from Poland and leave overland to Russia. I already have a 3 year multiple entry Russian visa but I am wondering if I will need an invitation letter to visit Belarus. If anyone has information or is willing to assist me with a letter of invitation I would be very grateful.

Hi Jason,

Unfortunately, you'll still need to have a Belarusian visa to enter the country.

Hi J
I know a travel agency that can give you an official invitation for visa and touristic vaucher for 20 $
To open visa in Bearus you should apply for it in Embassy of Belarus in your country or, if there is no Embassy of Belarus, you can get in in our airport...
Not so easy, yeh?)

J Mitchell , , USA, 2 months ago

Is it not possible to apply for Belarus visa overseas? Do you need specific dates? The issue for me is applying here in US i would have no idea exactly when I would arrive to Belarus. I was hoping to just apply in Poland or Lithuania while traveling. I appreciate all the responses from everyone. I would like to avoid using a travel agency for the invite letter if possible.
