Prices for tours to Brest

May-September is considered the ideal time to travel to Brest. It should be noted that the cost of tours to Brest in the summer period increases by about 40-50% compared to the off-season, and prices for August tours increase by 10-20% compared to June. If your goal is to save on vacation expenses, then it makes sense to have a rest in this Belarusian city in spring and autumn..

On a note!

If you plan to use credit cards, then you should know that only large hotels, shops and restaurants are accepted for payment (Visa and MasterCard are preferred).

Returning home from Brest, it is worth bringing with you Belarusian knitwear (for this purchase you should go to the clothing market “Old city”), linen clothes and bedding, lace and beaded embroidery, birch bark and crystal products, bison figurines, tinctures on berries and herbs, Belarusian cosmetics.
