Travel with Children

Apart from the Belarusian State Circus in Minsk, there are not a whole lot of traditional children's sights or entertainment options. What few options do exist – like the odd children's theatre or museum – operate in Russian. However, if you do happen to venture here with your tots in tow you won't necessarily be disappointed. The vast parks of Minsk are perfect for stroller-pushing parents or older kids who want to run around. You can rent bikes as well as boats in many of the parks in Minsk, Brest and elsewhere. The main park in Brest contains an amusement park, and Minsk has a Ferris wheel plus amusement-park rides and a huge water park. Many restaurants have on-site playgrounds so the adults can eat in peace.
