Useful to know

Here are a few important aspects to be known by any foreign citizen coming to Belarus.

The Belarusians are a peace-loving and well-wishing nation. One of the typical features of the Belarusian mentality is tolerance towards the people of different nations, races or confessions. During all its history our country has been a cross cultural area, where Western individualism, East European self-discipline, Northern tranquility, and Southern temperament met.

Today, Belarus is the home for people of more than 100 different nationalities. Many foreign students who have lived for some time in the other European countries make special mention of Belarusian hospitality, cordiality and the well wishing treatment of the Belarusians to people from abroad.

Still one must keep in mind that like any other city,  Brest is not homogenous regarding safety. We recommend you to be attentive in the streets, watch over your personal belongings, and avoid late visits to the distant parts of the city.

Given below are the numbers one can dial in case of emergency:

  • Emergency Service (Fire Brigade) – 101
  • Police – 102
  • Ambulance – 103

You can call to these services for free from any public phone!

The stay of foreign citizens is regulated by the special rules. In case if a foreign citizen violates these rules he or she is subject to an administrative penalty or deportation. That is why we recommend you to have identifying documents with you. Obligatory for you is to make a photocopy of your passport and have it with you all the time.
