An average week in Belarus

About this essay

Scrolling through contrasts, that is what you do during a week’s stay in the country of Belarus. This essay is the representation of the rare mix and high contrasts between the Soviet past and modern and more colourful times that are found all over Belarus. The journey starts in the city of Gomel, near the Russian and Ukrainian border, as we travel to the great capital of Minsk.
