Minsk is the capital of Belarus and the country’s largest city. If you’re planning a trip there you will be best served by considering our Minsk car hire services to help you get from A to B as quickly as possible. The city was pretty much destroyed during World War II, only about a fifth of the city was still left standing when the fighting stopped and as a result the city was rebuilt in the Soviet-Bloc style. This makes the city a great place to visit if you are very interested in the Soviet era but one should be aware of the fact that tourism is not a priority in the city.
If you get into the city by plane then you will be landing at Minsk Airport which is located thirty-five kilometers from the city. The airport is connected to the city by regular bus routes but these show up only every 45-60 minutes so by far your best choice would be to employ our Minsk car rental services and have your choice of vehicle ready for you at the airport as soon as you land.
As mentioned before the Minsk authorities to not focus on any tourist potential that the city might have, the main things that you can visit are the Belarus National Museum of History & Culture which has a lot of exhibits but the explanation panels are only in Russian or Belarusian.
The city features a few interesting churches like St. Mary Magdeline Church which was built in 1847 in the Orthodox style and sports a pointed octagonal bell tower. Then there is Saint Peter and Paul Church which was built in 1613 and then restored in 1871, the oldest church in Minsk and definitely worth a visit.
If you visit during the winter season then you can benefit from two great skiing resorts which offer a large range of winter activities.
Regardless of the reason behind your visit, employing our Minsk car rental services will definitely make your trip much better.
