My son is going to travel from Switzerland to Moscow. He has already bought the tickets for the entire trip but reservations only to Brest because it was not possible to make reservation on Belarus trains. They will spend the day in Minsk before catching a overnight train to Moscow. Is it possible/easy to make a reservation for the same day? Will there be anyone speaking english? Is there a special desk? Do they accept credit cards?
We searched for and back seat61 but didn't find an answer.
Thank you for your help.
I've read a little about the above museum which is located about 30km from Minsk. Does anyone know of a bus that runs close by the museums location? I've been told that having a car or taking a taxi are the only options available and if thats true then I may be in some bother! :) I'm really very keen to see this place. I'd be prepared to pay for a taxi if i could get one a bit closer then 30km away!
Maybe some of you guys have been there and can give some good tips
My idea is to visit Minsk during a couple of days (29-30 april). But the problem are the papers... they seem unscalable! (letters, visa, money...). We have spanish passport, and no embassy between Spain-Belarus.

How easy is it to get back and forth between Minsk and Vilnius. Are there frequent rail or bus links? Do they run at regular intervals? I'm not sure why, but this information seems hard to come by.

Hi everyone. I wonder if you can help me at all. I want to come to the Minsk State Linguistic University for 5 months from January - June. The university needs various documents from me before it can send me the letter of invitation (passport, health certificate etc. all translated into Russian - should not be too much of a problem). But the main problem is that before they can send me the letter of invitation, I need to tell them where I will be living, and they need the contact details of the owner so that they can confirm it. Does anyone have any suggestions of how I should go about finding an apartment/a room in an apartment in Minsk, while I am still here in London? And also, what the prices should be? It seems to me that what I really need is a friend/relative in Minsk who's contact details I can give to the university and who will confirm to the university that I am staying at their place...? Any help greatly appreciated. Rahim
Hello everybody ! how are you doing ? I am Lebanese and I really want to visit Minsk for two weeks Sep2-16 but I need this invitation/voucher letter in order to get a touristic visa from the consulate of Belarus in lebanon. They tried to rip me off here in lebanon by asking me a lot ( 100 USD for an invitation paper + 120 USD hotel per 1 night + in addition to 60 EURO for the visa )! Can you help me get a better deal ? I am a backpacker and I prefer to stay in a dormitory or cheap hostel ( 15 per day )and I need them to issue me the invitation/voucher as soon as possible because I am running out of time and I will be forced to cancel my trip if I couldnt find a cheap offer since my budget is limited. - how much does the invitation/voucher cost officially ? I dont use credit cards ! can I pay them cash there on arrival at the airport of Minsk for the dormitory and the invitation paper ? if the above options are difficult, do you know any local person who can help me with the invitation paper and host me in his place :) In case you use instant messanger and you can help me , please add me my ms adress: email@example.com / yahoo : firstname.lastname@example.org I am looking forward to reading your reply as soon as possible because I am running out of time and my vacation is getting shorter..

I need to get from the railway station to the airport in the middle of the night in Minsk soon. I cannot obtain Belarus cash in advance. Will a taxi driver take Russian Rubles, or Euro, or even USD? ...and to save me the hassle, how much should I expect to (really) pay for the trip?

After trying to gather some intelligence from internet I decided to post a question here. I am sure that some of you live in Belarus, and in Minsk in particular and some have already visited Belarus. We are planning a trip to Minsk in June and need some info on living conditions, accommodations, hostels et cetera. How much shall we budget for food? Do we have to stay in expensive hotels if we are EU citizens ? Is cheaper accommodation available and safe? What are obligations of a person inviting us? Could somebody help?

My wife and I will be going to Minsk in March (12,13,14) and are looking for a non-professional, local person, to be our guide for a day or so. We are easy going people and want to get oriented to the city, perhaps ride the metro, go to lunch or dinner (I buy). I would be glad to pay someone a very fair price to be our guide. Of course you would need to speak a little English! Any takers...) thx ray
