Getting Around in Belarus
 
 
 

By Air

International and domestic airlines serve Minsk International Airport, which is 25km (17 miles) west of town. Be aware that flights within Belarus, as in other parts of the former Soviet Union, might be delayed.

By Rail

Services run regularly from Minsk to all other towns. For more information, contact Belarus Railways (www.rw.by). Decent train service is available internally, and trains connecting to Belarus can be boarded throughout Europe. There is frequent service on the main line from Warsaw to Moscow with stops in Brest and Minsk.

By Road

Traffic drives on the right. International traffic signs and regulations are in use. Driving under the influence of any alcohol is strictly forbidden. Speed limits are 60kph (37mph) in towns and cities and 90kph (55mph) on country lanes. There are frequent radar traps.

Bus & Coach

Long distance buses by far are the best choice for travelling within Belarus. They are cheap, quick and safe.

Car Rental

Avis car rental is available at Minsk International Airport. You can check out the fleet of cars available in Minsk from Avis. Do take note that fuel is not always easily available. So an extra tank or canister might be helpful.

Documentation: International Driving Permit required. Also needed are a driving licence and a latter of attorney if not the owner of the car being driven.

Urban Transportation

Public transport is cheap and efficient. The city of Minsk has an underground system with two lines that cover central Minsk (16 stations). It is in the process of being expanded. Trains run between 5:30 am and 1 am, buses, trams and trolleybuses between 5:35 am and 12:30 am. Tickets for buses, trams and trolleybuses can be purchased at news-stands or kiosks and are to be punched on board. Entry to the underground is by tokens which are obtainable from stations. Taxis are available and carry a maximum of four passengers; fares can vary greatly.
