CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR IN MINSK

Why would anyone bother to take a long flight or train ride to Minsk? For many, the only reason for such an endeavour would be a well-preserved ancient urban architecture, or some European-level museums, or major music festivals, or at least a little-known wonder of the world. However, Minsk does not have any of that – and yet it attracts those who like visiting less-known cities or have business and family ties. This guide can be handy to those who are planning to visit the capital of Belarus for their Christmas and New Year holidays.
