Local food serving restaurants/cafes/bakeries

Hi all,

I am into local food (e.g., Buckwheat blini, Lazanki, khaladnik, perepecha, zhur, Polivka, Schav, Kvass, to just name a few!), and my questions are as follows;

Where is exactly National Foods restaurant? Apparently somewhere in Trinity Suburb, but I cannot nail down its exact location. My research shows apart from National Foods there is another restaurant, Vasil'ki(http://www.vasilki.by/). This franchise looks VERY posh to me, or rather too posh for the local Belorussians to dine!…

Hi again,

My research shows it is located at Ulitsa Very Horuzhej 8, but I cannot locate it on Google Map.

Could someone tell me exactly where it is and also when it is open (weekend only?)?

Money changers open at weekends in central Minsk?

Hi all,

I am thrilled to visit Minsk end of December and wonder if money changers are open at weekends in central Minsk as I arrive at weekend from Vilnius.

Banks are NOT open at all at weekends, right?

I hope they charge at a reasonable rate!

Cheers,

getting visa in Poland

Hello,

I'm a Danish national planing on traveling to Belarus overland via Poland. As we don't have a belarusian embassy in Denmark, I am wondering if it is possible for me to obtain a visa at a belarusian consulate or embassy in Poland?
Apparently Belarus sees Denmark as a migration secure state. What does that mean?

Cheers

2.5 days in belarus

Hi all,

I am planning to spend a full day in Minsk and the 2nd day to to to a number of locations eg mir castle on the way to Brest then over night there and a half day there before returning to Minsk in the evening.

Would anyone recommend hiring a driver for the drive to and from Brest ?

Also is this a good idea for 2 days or should we just spend in Minsk?

Transit Visa query for long Minsk airports stop over

Hello,

Belarus has been on my list for a long time but I somehow never made it, maybe partly because of the Visa hassle.

I now found a flight from Vilnius to Tbilisi that arrives at MSR at 10.50 and doesn’t leave until 22.50. So in theory a perfect excuse to spend a full day in Minsk.

The question is will I get a transit Visa for this? I read about Visa on arrival but couldn’t find anything about transit visa. So would the embassy need to issue it beforehand? Otherwise I could risk visa on…

European Road Trip - buying a car in Minsk, Belarus

Hi, we are two Australians who will be crossing from Russia into Belarus where we want to buy a van and take our time driving to France.

Cost isn't really an issue (we have a bit of money, but don't want to waste it obviously) but I'm unsure on the rules and regulations of taking a car bought in Belarus across the border to Poland.

Are tourists able to purchase used cars in Belarus? Legally obviously :) Provided we are, and we have all papers in order, is it possible to continue into europe?

Visa to Belarus

Good Afternoon,

I am a Portuguese citizen and I plan to travel to Belarus in middle of August, I know I have to get a visa with a proper invitation for a private type of visa.

The issue is there is no embassy in my country, there nearest one would be in France which is quite far.
Does anyone know how can I apply for my visa?

NOTE: I am arriving by train therefore it's not possible to get one on the airport.

Thanks in advance.
