A shining gem, the Republic of Belarus is one of the least crowded, but one among the most beautiful destinations in Eastern Europe. Sharing borders with Poland, Lithuania, Russia and Ukraine, this country is an amalgamation of many different cultures and languages. Almost half of the country is agricultural land and this makes for some beautiful sights when traveling through Belarus by road.

Belarus is a young country that gained independence only in 1991 and thus is still in the early stages of setting up its international and trade relations with the world. One of the amazing facts about Belarus is that people here are extremely fond of potatoes, with over 300 kinds of potatoes that are a part of most of the national dishes. So if you're a vegetarian, fear not, the tators have got your back.

Belarus is also famous for its many casinos and cheap cinema theatres. If you are a fan of the television series Friends, you will definitely remember Phoebe's scientist boyfriend David, who had to take off to Minsk, Belarus, for years for his research! You will also find that Belarus has one of the most punctual public transport systems in the world and that it is famous for the most number of discovered treasures buried in Europe!
