Accommodation In Belarus
Encounter history and Soviet architecture in Minsk
The architectural style of buildings in Minsk was largely influenced by the Soviet Union. It's a style that's evident in a lot of the city's hotels including the 5-star Crowne Plaza Hotel and the Hotel Europe, which is housed in an atrium-style building. City-centre hotels plant you right amongst the unique architecture and an array of museums and historically significant buildings.
Minsk also caters to the budget-savvy traveller with its collection of bang-for-ya-buck hostels and cosy midrange hotels featuring all necessary amenities. Whether you're after spacious apartments, comfortable private rooms or social dorm rooms, Minsk has you covered.
Historical sites all the way to the border in Brest Oblast
Brest Oblast is one of the westernmost regions of Belarus, renowned for its impressive historical attractions including Brest Fortress, the Berestye archaeological museum, a 13th-Century tower, and a number of churches and buildings dating back to the 17th Century. The main city, called Brest, is an excellent place to explore the history of Central and Eastern Europe, while enjoy the plush surrounds of quality hotels and B&Bs.
One of the most remarkable cities in the region is Pinsk, which has a lengthy history and plenty of buildings to prove it. The city isn't very populated, so there's only a small selection of accommodation available, but what's there keeps you well rested and comfortable.
Gomel's bursting with culture
As the second largest city in Belarus, Gomel is worth the trip to the country's south-eastern corner if only for its numerous museums, theatres and art galleries. Within the city, you can find an assortment of hotels and B&Bs that welcome guests with friendly service and quintessentially Belarusian decor.
You have the option of park and river views at the Hotel Zamkovyj or a place among the sights at any of the city-centre hotels such as the 3-star Tourist Best Eastern and the Amaks Vizit Hotel. Regardless of where you stay, the sights, locals and lodgings are sure to make your visit enjoyable.
