Hold US dollar, spend BYR
Because of high inflation in Belarus, the exchange rate between Belarus rubbles to world hard currencies changes too frequently that the local people tend to hold dollars or other hard currencies instead of country money. It is possible to pay in dollars in the market, but in stores only belarus roblles are the offical currency. So, there are change stands in almost every big stores and a lot on the streets. The manner local people do shopping is like this: Get into the store and find out what to buy; calcuate the total amount of shopping and find the nearest change window to change the exact amount of belarus rubbles; back to the store and pay for the goods.
However, since we are foreigners, some slaesclerk can be so kind that they do accept dollars as far as the amount is right.
Drink, my friend, drink!
If you're from the west, and particularely if you're on a business trip or if you plan to make friends with locals in Minsk - start drinking training at home already, you'll need it. Drinking is an integral part of a meeting, of a pleasurable evening, of negotiations, of celebrating. And "drinking" here means heavy drinking. Mainly vodka of course. Don't be unpolite: Join in, shot by shot, along with your friends (who, by the way, after a shared vodka evening will be more friends than before). Just try to eat as much as you can and drink much water besides vodka - it helps staying clear.
And especially if you're with business partners, talking crap when you're totally drunk could seriously damage the trust your partners have in you.

The building of National Opera and Ballet Theater
In fact, it is the most popular place between foreign visitors of Minsk. The tickets are very cheap comparing to other countries and performances (in best Russian Ballet traditions) are really impressing. Ballet is possible to watch on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. Tuesdays, Thurdays and Saturdays are for opera.
