Grodno – getaway to Belarus
Grodno made a very good impression on me, as the first encounter with Belarus. I’m well aware this might have been only the facade because of the championships and a big number of foreign visitors. But to me the city looked extremely pleasant and super clean. It felt like a lively city, with lots of people were spending time outside, wandering the cobbled streets in the center or grabbing a beer (a really good one!) in the restaurant. Everyone was super nice and friendly, trying to interact with us and helping us to deal with the overwhelming Belorussian money (100.000 rubles = 10$). That was the afternoon. In the evening however, when it was getting dark around 10 p.m., it felt like an abandoned city. There was almost no one on the streets, most of the windows in the blocks we were passing were dark, the light on the streets didn’t turn on until it was very dark. It was slightly uncomfortable but at the same time I felt very safe there.
Grodno was a really great place and I’d love to return there, just to see the big if the life without the big sports event is any different there…Below you can see couple of pictures of very pleasant Grodno, Belarus.
