Things to do in Minsk during the weekends


What do you usually do on your weekends in Minsk?

Are there any places to visit, any activities, any events or festivals regularly organized you would like to recommend?

What are your top tips for the weekend in Minsk?

Thank you in advance for sharing your experience, ;)


Botanical gardens only. Any time of the year! Great place almost in the middle of endless cars and boring grey buildings.

Otherwise.. not much festivals (Yoga festival once a year!), no street music, no street food, and no cafes/restaurants are affordable to be visited every weekend. Minsk is quite a boring place, everything you'd need to see can be done in 1-2 weekends. I do not consider casinos, bars and shady places in parks as anything worthwhile a visit.

Hi, we are making a website in English about everything you can do and see in Minsk.

Visit in a few months, it will be ready by then. There are a lot more things to do in Minsk than one may think.

Hi ilyanice,

I will be much appreciated if you could share your views on the topic on the forum itself so that members of the Minsk forum get some useful infos.

Thank you in advance,

Hi everyone! I walked the whole weekend in the city of Minsk and found out that you can rent a bike (biking roads are everywhere!!!), a boat, roller skate, play basketball and volleyball, meet people and make friends. And also recommend to study Russian in Minsk (, there are many students now from different countries!
I would like to share pictures, not sure that it's going to work, but pictures are worth seeing!;o~;otVqoX8HHKhLkBIeGrvYOxjWsOqOIrsG2NeJ17vue7z2S6udxOk.bps./735277626583583/?type=1&theater
