Thanks!Fantastic photos! Just came back from Minsk myself, stopped by for a day driving back from Vilnius
If you even come by Belarus again I recommend checking out Vitebsk as well.
I've heard about Vitebsk. We even considered going there for a day. But at the end we had to set priorities right and it appeared that time was a constraint. It's never a problem to get to Belarus for me though. Only if the stupid visa regime was abolished sooner rather than later.
