MINSK, 11 May (BelTA) – Minsk Pass cards are now sold in the Minsk National Airport, BelTA learned from Alexander Shifrin, Chief Specialist at the Mingorspravka enterprise.
There are plans to open a tourism inquiries office in Minsk's Trinity Suburb on 19 May. The office will also sell Minsk Pass cards.
According to Alexander Shifrin, Minsk Pass card holders most of all visit Mir Castle, the museum in Nesvizh, the Belarusian State Museum of Folk Architecture and Rural Lifestyle, art and history museums, the Great Patriotic War History Museum, the observation platform of the National Library of Belarus, and the zoo.
BelTA reported earlier that Minsk Pass cards became available in retail in January 2018. As many as 37 museums joined the project initially, including 14 ones outside Minsk as well as 16 hotels, six public catering establishments, and eight retail chains. Since early April the cards have been available in five formats — VIP, premium, de luxe, business, and economy and a total of 16 types, which are valid for different periods of time — from 24 hours to 12 months — and offer digital passes for urban transportation or not. Over 50 companies and museum complexes have expressed their readiness to join the project.
Minsk Pass cards can be bought at the railway terminal and in an outlet in the Upper City, in the tourism information center Minsk at 13 Revolyutsionnaya Street, and online.
