About Minsk

As the capital and major cultural centre of Belarus, Minsk is also the capital of the Commonwealth of Independent States. 80% of the city was destroyed during the World War II, and then rebuilt in 1950. Minsk is full of Soviet bloc buildings which makes it an interesting spot for those who love Soviet Union history.

Buses to Minsk

In Minsk there are three international bus stations: Central Bus Station, Eastern Bus Station and Moscow Bus Station. Most of the coaches to Russia and Europe depart from Moscow Bus Station. The bus is often preferred, due to the poorer quality of the train services, and consequently this creates long queues to cross the border (be prepared to spend 1h 30min waiting).
