For all the fun of the fair, old-fashioned style, visit the Chelyuskinites Amusement Park in the city centre of Minsk. Established in 1932 and little changed since, it is a far cry from Disneyland, but there is plenty of fun to be had on rides like a Ferris wheel and roller-coaster, and one can rent radio-controlled planes to play with (the park is named after a famous Belarussian pilot). Alongside the park is a very pleasant Botanical Garden to stroll through.
Address: Skoriny Street
Admission: Entry to the park is free, but admission to each ride is charged
