What are the particular advantages of living in this city?
Clean, quiet, safe, breathable air, and four seasons. It is relatively inexpensive in Minsk. Pedestrian right of way is rigorously observed. There is excellent public transportation and lots of parks. Decent restaurants and nightlife. There are many family-friendly places as well. - Apr 2019
The ability to save money; a hardship tour which is relatively safe (it's a hardship for other reasons); if you really like snow they get a fair amount here. - Oct 2011
