Minsk is one, if not the most beautiful cities in the world to live. Although it is not the first choice my many, it is still a new alternative for someone who seeks a new city to live in. With its relatively low crime rate, your safety is surely secure.

Minsk has a warm summer humid continental climate (Koppen Dfb), owing to its location between the strong influence of the moist air of the Atlantic Ocean and the dry air of the Eurasian landmass. Its weather is, however, unstable and tends to change often. The average January temperature is −6.1 °C (21.0 °F), while the average July temperature is 17.8 °C (64.0 °F). The air is often moist, with humidity levels at 80–90%, especially during the cold season.

Minsk has an extensive public transport system. Passengers are served by 8 tramway lines, over 70 trolleybus lines, and over 100 bus lines. Trams were the first public transport used in Minsk. Public buses have been used in Minsk since 1924, and trolleybuses since 1952. All public transport is operated by Minsktrans, a government-owned and -funded transport not-for-profit company.

The city offers a variety of apartments to stay depending on your period of stay and the number of people you are with.  A 3-room apartment in Minsk, Kolas square cost 100$ per day; while a two-room apartment located on the central railway station cost 80$ per day. Lastly, prepare 60$ for a one day stay in a one-apartment at Bedy str. 29 near the Nekrasov and Surganov streets.

With this knowledge and along extensive preparations, living in Minsk will be a lot easier.
