A Step Back in Time
If you didn’t visit the Soviet Union before its demise, Belarus is the place to catch a glimpse of it. The architecture of its main cities is still in a post-war Soviet time warp, and monuments to those lost in WWII dot the countryside. More than just a curious snapshot of Soviet memories, Belarus has a lively cultural scene, including an acclaimed international arts festival in Vitebsk, Chagall’s hometown. Rural folk customs are still vital, and along the Polish border lies a vast ancient UNESCO-listed forest where the rare European bison, the wisent, roams.
