Belarus Transportation

  • From Poland to Belarus

    The cheapest way is just hitch-hiking to Terespol and then to Brest. You can also go to Brest directly from Warsaw by a train, but there is more cheap way of going there.Go to Terespol (a border town) from e.g. Warsaw by a train. It costs 22 PLN (7 USD) for a second class and 33 PLN (11 USD) for a first class. Travel time app. 3,5h - 5h.In Terespol...

  • Moscow-Berlin by car via Byelorussia

    Roads in Byelorussia are better than in Russia (E30). Though there are speed restrictions (120 km/h between Minsk and the Russian border and 130 km/h between Minsk and Brest) we moved at speed of 140-160 km/h and enjoyed almost absence of other cars there...

  • Public transport

    Metro looks just like a pharmacy. Everything is so clean and tidy. No grafitti, no posters, no dirt. However, everything is written in Belarussian but it wasn't a problem for me because I understood everything. Besides, The Main Train Station is new and makes you feel as if you're in Japan. I haven't noticed any rush hours in Minsk. There's not so...

  • How to Refuel Your Car

    Most gas stations seem to be self-service in Belarus. Fuel comes from Russia and is subsidised so my diesel was around $0.50 per litre compared to $1.60 in the UK.In Belarus, you need to pay before fuelling. You go to the cash desk and say which pump you are at and how much fuel you want in litres or by cash value. Or you can leave a big banknote...

  • Getting Around by Car in Belarus

    We took our own car to Belarus for may different reasons, one of which is that we are a family of 7 and air fares soon add up! I had read of how bad the roads were and how Belarussians are crazy drivers, also the police stop you and fine you for nothing. Well...In fact, Belarus is no worse than some other countries to get around. The main M1...

    If you plan to use the main highway M1 to cross Belarus be prepared to pay at the toll booths. On our Journey from Brest to Orsha we came across 3 Toll Plazas. On seeing we were in a foreign car, they demanded US Dollars or Euros for the toll - NOT Belarus Roubles. It is probably just a scam for them to get some nice foreign money to exchange when...

  • Belarusska Chugunka

    It is rather convinient to go to Belarus by train.What was strange that on my way from Moscow to Minsk none asked me to show my passport. There is no border between countries, but what is more strange that even train conductors asked only for ticket.

    Taxi are quite frequent though agree a price before you start your journey. Use registered taxis 'only' or you may find that you are in very real danger.Walking, my advice is to walk and if possible higher a local guide. This will prove invaluable.

    I would only take a plane, if you have to take a car, you might be sitting in line at the border for a few hours.Take the subway when ever you can. It's wonderful. If you can't hail a cab, they are reasonable, don't be afraid if a car just pulls over and wants to pick you up.

    The most comfortable way to come to Belarus is air in my opinion. The National Airport Minsk has connection with 14 European countries as well as with post-USSR counries. Flights are regular, and fares are not too pricey. Here is a link for National Airline website: BELAVIA Belarusian AirlinesThe chain of railroads is well developed also, but the...

    Flights inside Belarus are hardly worth considering. In fact, only a handful of domestic flights is available. It would be more comfortable to use a bus or train. There are some car rental agencies in Minsk, though you should bear in mind that distances within the country are pretty long.
