About Belarus

Belarus (White Russia), a landlocked country in Eastern Europe, declared independence from the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic in 1991. Ever since the country’s politics, violation of human rights, and freedom of the press have been extensively criticised. However, the country is raising from its complicated past, seeing substantial industrial development taking place in the capital city of Minsk.

Inevitably, 20% of Belarus’ total population lives in Minsk, a modern city that after the devastation during the World War II had to be rebuilt, almost from scratch. So, if you are looking to relocate for business, note that Minsk focuses on the industrial sector, and there’s an opportunity for investment.

A referendum in 1995 has declared two official languages in Belarus -- Belarusian and Russian.

Leisure mainly revolves around nature, with over 40% of the country’s land being a forest. Once there, indulge in the landscape of blue cornflower fields, dare to explore the thick forests, and enjoy the hospitality and warm welcoming you will receive from the charming residents of picturesque villages.
