The last stop on my trip through Belarus was the border city of Brest. Only the Brest Fortress has survived the Second World War, but not just the giant memorial complex is worth a visit! 🙂
Many may be familiar with the French Maginot Line. The Soviet counterpart, the Stalin Line, is far less well known. 35 kilometers from Minsk, some of the few remains have been turned into a “Military Amusement Park”.
In the Soviet Union, the kids didn’t fly to London in Summer, but went to the Communist Pioneer Camp. One of these camps is rotting away in a forest near Minsk…
There is not much to see in Minsk, so most people will want to visit other places in Belarus. And Minsk serves as a good starting point for a round trip car hire! 🙂
