Feel inspired by the nature.

Be it winter or summer, autumn or spring, the menu of things to do in the open country is spectacular. When it’s snowy, head to ski centres, concentrated in plenty around Minsk, and enjoy winter sports there. Summer is the best time to take to aquatics and find out why Belarus is called “blue-eyed land”. Explore Belarusian lakes and rivers when fishing, running in a boat or swimming and sunbathing on the banks. In autumn it’s a special charm to make a cycle-travel and look around the countryside. The best thing to do in early spring is to have fun celebrating Maslenitsa outdoors. Later, when it’s getting warmer consider making a stroll to a city park or go out of city and feel how the nature’s waking up.
