About Belarus

Tucked away in Eastern Europe, Belarus might just be the continent's least understood country. Whether it's because it's the least-visited country in Europe, or because of years of history as a member of the elusive USSR, Belarus is a country that few have discovered. However, to know it is to love it. After all, the country is full of surprises, whether it be rows and rows of vineyards or historic castles and monuments. Interestingly, Minsk, the capital of the country, also boasts one of the most ornate subway systems in the world.
