Belarus is perhaps the most inaccessible, unknown and misunderstood country in Europe. This new guide - the first to focus on the Republic of Belarus - therefore offers a rare opportunity to study a country and its people as they really are, before the rest of the world catches on. Anyone with an interest in history and sociology will be fascinated by the continuation of traditional rural pastimes and industries; there are also vast areas of marshes, lakes and rivers, which are of particular appeal to ecologists and environmentalists.
