Belarus is still off the beaten path as a tourist destination, but it has everything from fascinating old cities to vast forests that are home to wildlife such as bears and wolves.The city of Minsk is both the capital of Belarus and the countrys largest urban center. It dates back to at least 1067. Minsk was almost completely destroyed by the Nazis in World War II, but it has been rebuilt into one of the most impressive cities in northern Europe. Among its attractions are the Great Patriotic War Museum, the Belorusian State Museum of Folk Architecture, the newly constructed National Library, and the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit. You will find plenty to see and do outside of Minsk. There are magnificent ancient fortresses in Mir and Brest. At Khatyn, the site of a village that was obliterated by the Nazis, you can visit the National Memorial Complex. The historic community of Njasvizh is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
