As the capital and largest city of Belarus, Minsk represents a cultural center full of churches, libraries, museums, and theatres.
Let the collections at Nesvizh Castle and Money Museum Groshi capture your imagination. Explore hidden gems such as Belarusian Folk Museum of Architecture and Rural Life and Spas & Wellness. Get out of town with these interesting Minsk side-trips: Mir (Mir Castle & Holy Trinity Church). The adventure continues: take an in-depth tour of Belarusian State Museum of the History of the Great Patriotic War, pick up some local products at Minskiy Komarovskiy Market, buy something for everyone on your list at Zamok Mall, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Church of Saints Simon and Helena.

Plan my Minsk trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Stockholm, Sweden to Minsk is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train, ferry, and bus; or do a combination of car and ferry. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Stockholm to Minsk due to the time zone difference. While traveling from Stockholm, expect a bit warmer days and about the same nights in Minsk, ranging from highs of 26°C to lows of 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 5th (Fri) early enough to drive to Brest.
