Belarus Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 36%, Belarus represents a slice of Europe that remains frozen in the grip of the Cold War - even though the rest of the continent thawed out years ago. This provides the canvas for quite a bizarre travel experience, because unlike the past, the doors are open to PlanetHoppers! from around the world, and there's no denying the fact that the locals will welcome you with open arms. Another benefit of being off the radar for so long is that places like Bialowieza Forest - the oldest national park in all of Europe - has remained relatively untouched, just waiting for streams of PlanetHoppers!
