Belarus in five days
In recent years Belarus’ lively capital, Minsk, has caught on as an alternative weekend break. While Minsk’s worthwhile museums and impressive dining and nightlife scene make for a thoroughly enjoyable experience, visiting for even just five days allows you to cut your teeth on provincial Belarus, a famously flat land of fairytale castles, rolling sunflower fields, forgotten schtetls (Jewish villages) and enchanted forests. You can’t do it all in five days, but with careful route-planning you can cherry-pick a few of the best spots.

Ten reasons to visit Minsk
The double-towered Holy Spirit Cathedral (pl Svabody) is the Old Town’s most striking landmark, but the ‘Red Church’ (pl Nezalezhnastsi) is perhaps the most eye-catching of Minsk’s religious buildings. This Roman Catholic church has holiness layered into its very foundations: the bricks were brought all the way from Polish pilgrimage site Częstochowa. It was twice repurposed into a cinema but is now the heart of Minsk’s Catholic community. Admirers of the classic onion-domed Orthodox churches should make for the star-spangled Church of St Mary Magdalene (vul Kisyalyova).
