Summer Holidays in Europe’s most Soviet-like state!
On this tour, we’ll ride tanks, visit the KGB Building and see where the 1st Congress of the Russian Social Democratic Liberal Party met, but there’s more to Belarus than just its spectacular Soviet history which has been so well preserved. We’ll also hang out on a graffiti street, have a tasting at a brewery and ride a children’s railway. August is buzzing in Belarus, with locals enjoying the short, but beautiful summer, and we’ll get to really soak in that atmosphere when we spend a day at one of their favourite holiday spots outside of Minsk.
August is rife with festivals and events, which of course aren’t planned very far in advance, but we’ll have our ears to the ground to see what we can go to. A couple we’ve got our eyes on are Vulitsa Brazil, a festival where Brazilian/Belarusian graffiti artists paint new murals on October Street and around the city, and the other is A-fest organised by Alivaria Brewery.
