As the capital and largest city of Belarus, Minsk represents a cultural center full of churches, libraries, museums, and theatres.
Get out of town with these interesting Minsk side-trips: Mir (Mir Castle & Chapel and Burial Vault Svyatopolk-Mirskikh) and Dudutki Museum Complex (in Ptich). There's much more to do: get lost in a book at National Library of Belarus, get engrossed in the history at Belarusian State Museum of the History of the Great Patriotic War, pause for some serene contemplation at Church of Saints Simon and Helena, and make a trip to Independence Square, Minsk.
