How often are the skies so clear?
In small villages, the stars shine very brightly. I work in the village and see it. If the sky is clear (no clouds), the stars shine bright. But the stars have disappeared in large cities. Lantern's light, the light of factories outshines the light of the sky. You will not see the stars in Minsk, only yellow sky at night in the capital.
Thank you for your response. How do most people heat their homes in the countryside of Belarus?
It depends on the village. Some are heated by natural gas. Some homes are heated by firewood. My school is heated by wood and coal. Modern homes generally have gas heating. But there are stoves in older homes .
What is the best way to travel around Belarus if someone is a tourist?
I love to travel by train, after having learned from the internet about the city, its sights. My brother likes to travel by car. He says it's very comfortable. You can drive the car as much as you want, you can stop or change the route.If you are a tourist, you can rent a car and make your own route. Or travel by bus (but you need to buy tickets in advance), there are special tourist routes.So you can choose the method of travel. The train gives you the opportunity to explore the city thoroughly (you come in the morning and leave in the evening), the car has a chance to see the many attractions in one day. Make your choice!
When is the best time to visit Belarus?
Let me see... Maybe from April till September. It's the most comfortable time to visit any country, I think. Also I would strongly recommended to visit Belarus in December and January (Christmas time).
