    • possibly visiting Belarus next month

      Brest Jul 28, 2016 at 8:06 AM

      Anyone know what is the real cost of traveling from Warsaw, Poland to Brest, Belarus please ? (ie., flying into Warsaw as a cheaper option than flying in Minsk.) And/or perhaps it is convenient to hire a car (with insurance) in Warsaw to visit Belarus ? Thank you. Pete

      leaving brest, by train

      Brest Apr 13, 2015 at 2:18 PM

      hello... we'll soon be going to belarus and have heard that, when leaving brest for poland, we'll need to find the customs office in brest central station in order to "stamp" ourselves out of the country.
      Does anyone know where the office is? And since we don't read cyrillic, what can we expect to find written on it?
      And one more question: would it be enough to get there one hour before our train leaves?
      thanks a million.

      2 questions about Brest - the Polish border & the fortress

      Brest Dec 27, 2012 at 1:23 PM

      Hello all
      Two questions for you
      First, crossing from Poland into Belarus - I was wondering if it takes longer to go from Poland to Belarus, or from Belarus to Poland? Silly question perhaps, but I hear it can take a while. Was thinking of getting the train from Warsaw to Brest.
      Second question, is it easy to visit the Brest Fortress memorial from Brest city itself. Is the public transport decent or must I use a travel agent or take a taxi?
      Also, if somebody can recommend good accommodation in Brest, that would be fantastic :)
      Thank you all

      Baranovichy, Belarus

      Baranavichy Oct 12, 2009 at 2:50 PM


      I will go to Baranovichy in 30 October.

      Does anybody can recomend any good restaurant (preferably local cuisine or maybe something from Polish, Lithuanian cuisine), some good shops with shoes, cloths?
      Local food (in the shops) - what to try (bred, cheese,....)?

      Can I use my bank card Visa for paying in the shops there? ATMs?

      I will take also some Euros there, hope to change them to Belarus rubles.

      Something interesting to see in the city and surroundings?

      Many many thanks!:)

    • Visit to Brest via WAW

      Brest Feb 12, 2008 at 6:37 AM

      My grandfather came to the US via Brest around circa 1915. He finally settled
      in Cleveland, Ohio. The ethnic background of our name is Ukrainian. My wife,
      daughter (who is fluent in Russian), and I are planning a trip to Brest to check
      the archives there regarding emigrants from that area. I need advise on how
      to get there from WAW, also I need a sponsor or hotel to "invite" us there, and
      any further info that may help us with the search. We do have copies of documents from that time period. Please advise as we are planning our trip for May, 2008. Thank you

    • train question for getting to Baranavochi

      Brestskaya Voblasts' Dec 25, 2006 at 8:53 PM

      I'm flying to Warsaw in a couple of weeks. I'm trying to get from Warsaw to Baranovichi by way of train. I would have flown into Minsk but it was much more expensive and the departure flights were rare and fare between. I'm trying to get to Baranovichi to visit some friends. Can anyone tell me anything about the train that travels to Baranovichi from Warsaw, like departure regulairity (daily?), approaximate cost? Is it just one train I need to take or are there several ones to get me there? I found a Polish site that had some of the information but unfortunately I do not read or understand Polish. Can anyone help me out with these question and if so, maybe more? I would greatly appreciate the help. Thanks-byron

    • Is Brest a safe place to visit?

      Brest May 28, 2006 at 5:38 AM

      I'm planning to take a train from Minsk to Brest this july. I want to stay one or two days in Brest and than I take a train to Poland. I am a young female and I will be alone on this trip (and during my stay) I would like to know if Brest is a safe place. Of course I will not wander the emty streets at night but I would like to take long walks during the daytime and make a lot of photographs. I heard a lot of scary stories about this place but none of the people telling them have actually been in Brest. So, should I believe them and change my trip, or is it all not that bad?
      Thanks a lot!

    • A little help please

      Brest Jul 28, 2005 at 9:24 AM

      Greetings! I'm hoping someone will help a guy out. I have been cooresponding with a young lady who says she lives in Brest, Belarus. We have exchanged e-mails and pictures for about two weeks now. There is a strong possibility that this could be a big scam so I'm hoping someone in Brest could check out this Address she gave me and tell me if it is valid or not. She has not asked for money or anything and sounds very genuine and I do like her a lot if she is real. The address is...

      Kosmonavtov str. 4
      Brest, 225000

      I dont want to give the name out because this could all be very real and that wouldn't be right. I'm just hoping some honest person in Brest will read this and want to help me out. If somebody has a better idea I'm listening...My e-mail is

      Thank you
