If you want to go to Minsk go with a friend you have always fun with!;) the people there are really nice, but it's a bit difficult to have a really good conversation with them.. i think nightlife in Minsk doesn't exist really!;) when i was there we were in some bars or restaurants or went to see a ballet or a circus.. if you love this Minsk is definitely a good place for it, because it's also very cheap!;) but if you want to party it could be difficult.. there are some discos but i don't think it's the same like by us.. i heard that nightlife is over there at eleven o'clock..!;) if you want to drink there alcohol you have to be twenty or you must have a good friend!;) in my case it was a good friend who brought me my drink!;) if you are there for more than three days you must see the places around Minsk where they commemorate the victims of the 2nd world war, it's very impressive, i won't forget it! have fun there!;)

Unless you really like COLD winters, go to Minsk in the Springtime or summer. Faboules people, really tried to help me with fiding the streets and sights (explaining in Russian, later with arms and legs and finally, just took my hand to take me to the spot I looked for). Must see is: Victory Square, Botanical Garden, KGB building, Lenin Square and Belarusian Opera. The last was fantastic. It is very sheap to eat and drink there and I suggest to go to a very lokal place with the local music/band playing in the back.

If you're going to ride the bus or metro when it's crowded always start making your way towards the door before it's your stop or you'll never get out.

Minsk has got to be the city with the cleanest streets I have ever seen ... whole armies of orange-dressed cleaners begin early in the morning and carry on ... till you can literally eat off the streets ... of course, this has a bit to do with the dictatorial effect found in many ex-communist cities in the region ... relatedly, Minsk also has a somewhat secretive feel to it, the feeling that you are being watched, certainly if you are near the dictator's quarters or the KGB building (beware of taking photos)... otherwise too, the city has several communist identities to it ... huge square blocks for buildings, Russian style hotels with prostitutes, dingy private apartments, impressive parks, very few tourists, and suspicious border guards, especially if you (like me) cross over into Belarus by land and are not from one of the neighbouring countries like Poland, Ukraine or Russia... they will pore over your passport for hours ... especially if you don't know the language ...
