Holidays in Belarus with Undiscovered Destinations

Put aside any preconceptions that you may have about Belarus. Too often known only for being the last Communist state in Europe, Belarus is one of the continent’s last truly undiscovered nations, with few visitors making it across from better known neighbours such as Poland and Lithuania. Those that do discover a land with a fascinating and often tragic cultural heritage that in many ways exemplifies what much of Europe was once like, before the onslaught of modernity. Our group tours and tailor made holidays to Belarus take in historic old towns that hark back to days when Belarus occupied part of an important trade route, and countryside which still harbours creatures long extinct in the rest of Europe. It is in Belarus’s rural landscape that the country comes into its own, revealing its gentle traditions that provide the perfect accompaniment to a trip through this enchanting country. More than any other nation in the region, Belarus is an enigma, its essence often guessed but rarely experienced. Change that and see for yourself the secrets of this hidden land.
