Because Minsk is a relatively new city to explore, planning for a short stay in the city is but a necessity. If you do not have much time to spend in this capital of Belarus, then might as well make sure that you carefully plan for your activities and see that you do not waste any of your precious time.
A weekend in Minsk for example maybe quite short, but for those who’ve made careful planning of their itinerary will see that a two-days stay in the city is not bad at all to get acquainted with the best sights and attractions it has. While a weekend in the city is too short, a long weekend in Minsk may give you more time to do and see more in town. This also allows you to add more places to visit, including those for a nightlife experience.
Spending a week in Minsk is already ideal for those who really opt for a short stay. A whole week is quite enough to do both indoor and outdoor activities in the capital. You can possibly visit all 11 theatres and 16 museums during this span of time.
There are also companies in Minsk that offer day trip services. Here, you get to see a quick view of the important sights and landmarks in the city for a whole day of guided tour. While this may be short, exploring the city with a guide are still guaranteed to be filled with fun and learning.
Despite the short stay in the city, a carefully planned tour will still allow you to fall in love with the city of Minsk.
