What to pack for Belarus
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 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.
Minsk weather can be unpredictable, so bring a waterproof coat or umbrella to prepare for rain showers all year round.
An adaptor plug
Voltage in Belarus is 220V and the sockets are of Type C or F, with standard European 2-pin plugs.
Sunglasses are essential all year round - they’ll shield your eyes in the sunny summer and protect against snow blindness in winter.
