As with many of the former Soviet republics, it can be a challenge to visit Belarus. For one thing; the language. They use cyrillic letters and they speak little or no english (or german or french or any other familiar tongue).
The best solution is thus to hire a Belarusien guide to help you.
And once that decision is made, why not go for the very best and choose Katya Makarevich.
You can get in touch with her here.
We visited Minsk and Belarus in early autumn and thanks to Katya it was a memorable stay.
