Belarus press release

Press release for the third edition of our Belarus guidebook by Nigel Roberts. 

Written by Bradt Travel Guides


Release: May 2015


With one foot still in its Soviet past, Belarus might not be the most obvious of holiday destinations, but in the past ten years visitor numbers have doubled. With a landscape of snow-edged lakes and primeval birch forest, dotted with Orthodox churches and a history tinged by both heroism and tragedy, it’s now attracting curious travellers seeking an isolated and enigmatic travel experience. 

Bradt’s Belarus is the only standalone guide to the country in English, combining detailed background information and expert practical advice. This third edition has been fully updated with 20% additional information and vignettes from the author, his personal recollections of living and working in Belarus, helping to bring the country to life. 

Nigel Roberts has been working on sustainable development projects with rural communities in Belarus blighted by the Chernobyl catastrophe for the past 14 years. Since publication of the first two editions of this Bradt guide, he has written about his travels in Belarus for a number of periodicals, particularly concerning the close relationship he has developed with communities and families in the district of Vetka.
