Certainly would advise to visit Minsk, Belarus and the Hotel Minsk. Excellent location on the main avenue in the centre of the city. Metro, shops, restaurants and clubs are all on the doorstep. Trips to Belarus are always an adventure which with years becomes more and more comfortable. Nice restaurant is Gostinniy Dvor (old Belarussian, Lithuanian, Polish type of cuisine) which is right next to the hotel and in front of the Red (because of bricks it is made of, nothing to do with the Soviets ;-) Church. But if you feel a bit nostalgic, you can find a very nice "My English grandmother" place with Miss Marple portrait over the entrance. We had breakfast there, enjoyed food as well as the service (this restaurant is located on Karl Marks street, not far from British Embassy, walking distance from the hotel).
