Прывет, сябры!:)

My boyfriend and I are going to spend last days of 2012 year in Belarus. We'll travel by hitchhike from near 22 of December till 10 of January.
We have no idea where to be at New Year Eve.. Can you tell us maybe some interesting or "comfortable" city, town for this?
For now the capital is in our plans, but that's because we don't know Belarus at all..
And what about other places in Belarus, that are worth to see in winter?

Hi Polina and Ihor!

The script of New Year's Eve in any place of Belarus is same. The difference is in the amount of people on central squares. Of course, more people you will see in Minsk and regional cities. At 1 a.m. everybody is going out to drink alcohol in the streets.

Me and my friends are going to celebrate NY in cozzy village house in the middle of forest. I got tired of big cities... It is better to celebrate NY with good friends. May be try to find some quite place, it has not to be much expensive.

thanks for the answer, denis! it's not so important for me where this celebrating will be held- in the city or countryside. more important to do it with interesting and cheerful people and just to change atmosphere, that's why i decided to spend my 3 free days in belarus. but forasmuch a low activity in a local groups i can conclude that belarusians are sleeping until spring, still cann't recover from the end of the world or doesn't like celebrating. that's why probably i'll spend the nye somewhere in karpathians in some quite place)
