Gomel

 
Gomel Gomel, the second largest city after Minsk, is located in the south eastern part of Belarus, in the same area that was once the centre of the atomic energy disaster at Chernobyl. It is one of the oldest towns in the country and although it served as a fortified military stronghold in the 15th and 16th century, it is not of great historical importance. At the beginning of the 19th century many of its original wooden houses where replaced by brick ones, leaving only a few remnants of the classicist architectural influence, such as the the Rumyantsev-Paskevich Palace. At present, the economy is slowly recovering again, not in the least because of the impact of the Chernobyl disaster and the fall of the former Soviet Un...
 

Mir

 
Mir The castle of Mir (16-17 c.c.) Mir was first mentioned in the chronicles of 1345. Mir is famous for its outstanding example of Belarusan stone architecture: the ancient castle, founded at the beginning of the 16th century by Prince Juri Il'jinic. After the County of Mir changed hands and became the possession of M.Radzivil-Sirotka in 1569, the castle was completed in several stages. Its architecture reflects the Middle Ages: strong fortress walls with towers, surrounded by earthen walls with bastions and a moat, protected the magnificent palace, the magnate's residence. Monumental and unassailable, the castle remained the symbol of strength and power over several centuries. Its ornamental features give it the a...
 

Minsk

 
Minsk Minsk, the capital of Belarus, has an exciting history. It has stood for over 900 years, however most of Minsk has been built since World War II. The center of the city is where most of the action and attraction is. The main roads, Skoriny and Masherova are the cleanest and busiest in Minsk. The city is also much safer than one would imagine. Many people hear bad things about Minsk, and Belarus in general, but the streets are quite safe. This is probably due to the huge amount of police and soldiers that can be found throughout the city. Dont be afraid to get out and meet the friendly people....
 

Pinsk

 
Pinsk Pinsk is a very nice city, but very small. There is one hotel there, Hotel Pripyat'. It is located next to the prominade, you can't miss it. There is also an attraction park at the end of the prominade. There are lots of street markets there, they are called Bazzares. If you are a person who is into fast and exciting cities that include a good nightlife, Pinsk is not for you. If you are, on the other hand, a person who likes to relax, Pinsk is perfect. Pinsk is looking very calm, but probably it has much changed. I found there 5 hotels (and Pripyat is not the best one, i liked Aelita (Chyhunachnaja St, 37A)) and about 15 restaurants only near the main square. Pinsk is good as a transite town, because it is stric...
