Minsk is the capital of Belarus and impressed with Soviet architecture and the Independence Day parade.
The Mir Castle is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and impresses with its unique style.
The city Brest is at the border with Poland and impressed with a fortress complex and monuments from the last world war and the modern city center.
Belarus is also known as the land of potatoes and offers a wide variety of dishes with potatoes.
I traveled to Belarus on a backpacking trip through several countries in Eastern Europe. I went to Minsk with the night train from Moscow (Russia) and visited at the city and the Independence Day parade. After a half day trip to the castle Mir, I continued by train to Brest. After the sightseeing I took the bus to Warsaw (Poland).
