Trip to Minsk, Belarus

I visited Minsk for business trip just for 2 days. In short, yes, Minsk very very clean and feeling like your came back to USSR. Aeroport was near empty. Not like in Moscow – thousands of people.IMG_20150903_160250-new

It was nice trip. Want to come back here either for work and vacation!

P.S.: I was not aware that historically Belarus had white-red-white(not Soviet red-green) flag and “Pahonia” coat pretty close to Lithuania one.
