Since Belarus is a relatively small country, some tourists manage to combine all of these pastime.Nevertheless, in order to fully experience the fabulous atmosphere of the New 2018, we recommend giving preference to only one (maximum two) option.
Street festivities - the traditional "trick" of the meeting of the holiday
As in Russia, with the evening of December 31, many residents of the cities of Belarus prefer to celebrate New Year on the street. Mass festivities take place in all large settlements, but they reach the greatest scope in Minsk. The Belarusian capital is still transforming beyond recognition two or three weeks before the onset of the New Year holidays. The city hangs holiday lights, banners with congratulations and light illumination.
In all areas, originally decorated Christmas trees appear, but the main New Year's beauty is set on October Square. Here on the night of December 31 to January 1, the main events will take place, which will include:
- colorful fireworks;
- New Year's disco;
- performance of famous artists;
- presentation from Santa Claus and Snow Maiden.
If the weather permits (the average temperature for the beginning of January varies between +4 - -4 ºС), then an ice rink will be poured over the square and skate rental will be available.If desired, guests will not only be able to dance or dance around the Christmas tree, but also to ride on a flat ice surface. The cost of renting skates in terms of the Russian currency will be no more than 100-150 rubles.
A trip to "Logoisk" - a great option for sports enthusiasts
A modern ski complex “Logoisk” with developed infrastructure is located 20 km north-east of Minsk. This stunningly beautiful place has everything you need for outdoor activities, and the snow trail is suitable for both beginners and experienced skiers (snowboarders). Near the ski resort there are several cozy hotels where you can stay with your family or noisy company. Reservations should be made in advance, as there will be no rooms available in these establishments closer to the holidays.
Rental prices for equipment and apartments are much cheaper than European ones. For example, a standard double room with all the amenities for a day costs only 2.5-3 thousand Russian rubles, breakfast will cost only 500-700 rubles, and the ride on the lift will not exceed 100 rubles. Rental equipment is also inexpensive and is in the range of 1-2 thousand rubles.All this suggests that the rest in Belarus for the New 2018 in “Logoisk” is quite affordable for middle-income Russians.
A trip to a pleasure institution is a good option for young people.

- “Max Show” and others.
Tables in restaurants and bars should be booked in advance, while the menu is quite cheap, and the show program is always fascinating. The average check is no more than 3-4 thousand rubles, although the total amount, of course, depends on the quantity ordered.
