    Baranovichy has good system of city public transport. The only tipes of public city transport are busses and taxi. Many buses are new and modern and all produced in Belarus - MAZ. These new buses look pretty nice. About half or less are old busses like Ikarus.
    Buses are driving between different city parts.
    Bus tickets are very cheap.

    Favorite thing: There is no old town in the city - old architecture from Polish times is not preserved till now. Old Baranowicze was destroyed during the wars like many other cities in Europe. At the time of Soviets the city developed and grew in Soviet style. Districts with blocks were created, but in the centre of Baranovichy lots of nice examples of typical USSR buildings were created. Just neoclassical style is presented.
