Welcome to Chelyuskinites Park

Chelyuskinites Park

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.

Information & Facts

Skoriny Street
Entry to the park is free, but admission to each ride is charged
Russian and Belarussian are both official languages, with the majority speaking Russian.

The currency is the Belarussian ruble (BYR), which is equal to 100 kopeks. There are no coins in circulation (plastic cards and tokens are used for the metro and public telephones). Currency and travellers cheques can be exchanged at banks and official bureaux de changes in Minsk and the larger towns. US Dollars and Euros are preferred and some currencies may not be accepted. Exchange offices may reject old/damaged notes and it is advisable to keep all receipts for exchange transactions as these may be required on departure, or when re-converting your leftover rubles. Mastercard and Visa are accepted at the larger hotels and tourist restaurants, but American Express and Discovery cards are not accepted at all. ATMs are widely accessible in major towns and banking hours are weekdays from 9am to 5pm.

Local time is GMT +2. (GMT +3 from last Sunday in March to last Sunday in October).
