Well, not entirely visa-free, you still need a visa/permit thing, but it takes 2-minutes to get online and costs 5 euros rather than £90 plus a visit to an embassy like a proper visa. One way in is to fly in and out of Minsk and get a 5-day visa on arrival but seeing as Easyjet, Ryanair and the other budget airlines do not fly to Minsk then this option would still be pricey. The online and overland option was introduced in 2017 as an experiment with tourism; and it may well discontinue at the end of the year so you’d better get a move on! The visas last 5-days and allow you to visit certain areas adjacent to the Polish border. One is Belovezhskaya Pushcha National Park, the Belarusian portion of the UNESCO recognised primeval ... read more

Rano budicek uz o 7/00, bo maly anton sa chystal do skoly. Andrej ide az na deviatu. Do skoly sa tu chodi ako volakedy u nas na dve smeny. Ziaci musia byt slusne obleceny, t.j. nohavice,sako,kravata. Dievcata zrejme sukna a neake sako, to ale nemozem povedat na sto pro. Rovnosaty ziadne, len aby bolo dieta slusne oblecene. Na ranajky ma cakali mini pirohy. By som to skor prirovnal k malickym tastickam naplnenym masom. Tie sa daju navolno kupit v obchodoch, taktiez sa da v obchode navolno kupit mrazena zelenina, hriby. Proste predavacka vysype do mrazaku tovar, dojde clovek a nabere si do sacku kolko potrebuje. Uz som sa chystal ist na mhd , ked tania vravi,ze oni idu tiez do mesta na aute.

No nakoniec sa islo spat az o 23/00. Deti sli spat spolu s tatianou a my sme este chvilu debatili, polsky. Bezproblemov som rozumel a co nie, tak to doplnene anglicky. Pascha nam spravil fajnovy salat, samozrejme doplneny o smotanu. V noci mi bolo trochu zima, rano zistene, ze vonku bolo iba +1 C. tatiana mala strach o svoju palmu co mala na krytom balkone ci jej nezmrzla ale vyzera,ze prezila. Budicek uz o 6/00, trochu prevalovanie v posteli, rozlucka s poliakmi, mozno sa s nimi stretnem v minsku. Na ranajky lievance. Vcera nam najmladsi syn (8 rokov) robil wafle. Sam zamiesil cesto a sam to aj uwafloval vo waflovacke. Fakt sikulak. Nieco po 9/00 vyrazam do mesta. Neviem ci som spominal ale je tu o hodinu viac ako u nas, takze zanedbatelny casovy posun. Do ... read more
