What to pack for Belarus

Experience Tick Thin Icon

Comfortable walking shoes

Minsk is a sprawling city and best explored on foot. Be sure to pack comfortable, worn-in walking shoes when you visit Belarus.

Russian phrasebook

Russian is the most widely used language in Belarus and can be difficult to learn. Pack a phrasebook to help decipher the Cyrillic alphabet and learn a few common words.

Experience Tick Thin Icon

Waterproof coat

Minsk weather can be unpredictable, so bring a waterproof coat or umbrella to prepare for rain showers all year round.

Experience Tick Thin Icon

An adaptor plug

Voltage in Belarus is 220V and the sockets are of Type C or F, with standard European 2-pin plugs.

Sunglasses

Sunglasses are essential all year round - they’ll shield your eyes in the sunny summer and protect against snow blindness in winter.
