    It is impossible to express all unpleasant emotions which fill me when I recollect a word "Brest" and an awful place - boundary transition "the Warsaw bridge". Six years, since 1999 we pass an execution in aspiration to drive to Poland, and then in two weeks - to return back.

    The smallest waiting time in turn for these years - 4 hours (for a bribe). Happened to wait for 10-12 hours... Our friends told us about 24 and 36 hours of waiting time... Terrible!!!

    Boundary transition (from Poland side)

    Warshavsky most from Poland (Terespol)

    The situation on the opposite side of the boundary transition (from Poland side) is a little bit better then from Bylorussia side. This year (2006) we passed a border during two hours. It is a record!

    Though last years it was necessary to wait for from 4 - to 6 hours...

  • Additional fee on the border !

    by Raffmo Updated Jul 16, 2005

    When crossing the border from Belarus to Poland you may be asked by Belarussian officers for showing a bill for ecological fee. You can buy it on the train station at the bank. It is app. below 2 USD.
    If you cannot show it to the border officer you will have to be back to pay for it.

    It is another idea of Lukaszenko (the presdient of Belarus) for obtaining an extra money.

    Demonstrations: Belarus is not...

    Belarus is not exactly what I would call a democracy (no offence meant!) when it comes to the demonstrations of protest against the government.

    They are usually dispersed by police with frequent use of violence and those who look like they might be at the heart of the trouble (a foreigner would be considered just such a person!) would be the first to reach the police station.

    Though Brest is much calmer in this respect and there are fewer demonstations - it's a frontier city, and people (and administration, too) are more pro-foreign, than, say in Minsk.
