Minsk is a city that brings people together. For many travelers, however, the attractions of this metropolis, with its 2 million residents, have remained a secret: The idyllic city center, along the banks of the Svislač River, is home to impressive historical buildings alongside futuristic architecture and a wealth of hip cafés and restaurants. Outside the city, unspoiled nature awaits. In Narаchanski National Park, centered around Lake Narach, visitors can hike, fish or cycle amid thousands of hectares of forest.
Passengers can now choose from four weekly flights departing from Munich to the Belarusian capital. Every Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 14.15, Belavia Belarusian Airlines will depart for Minsk with an Embraer E175 jetliner. Minsk Airport offers an excellent range of destinations, with attractive connecting flights to such countries as Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Armenia. The flight schedule also features more distant locales such as the Lebanese capital of Beirut and Baku in Azerbaijan.
The flying time from Munich to Minsk is just two hours. Representatives of Belavia and Munich Airport were on hand to celebrate the premiere of the new connection to Belarus. Passengers on the first flight were treated to traditional gingerbread hearts.
