Rural tourism opportunities in Belarus explained

MINSK, 3 May (BelTA) - In BelTA's YouTube project "After the Fact:Lukashenko's Decisions”, Irina Voronovich, Director of the Tourism Department at the Sport and Tourism Ministry, spoke about the ways of opening an agro & eco farmstead and the things that need to be taken into account.

“This kind of activity is quite simple because there are preferential terms. This is not an entrepreneurial activity, which makes registration easier. What is important is desire and land that will be used for its intended purpose. You also need a house. The document has a reservation: no more than 10 rooms with land to be used for its intended purpose,” Irina Voronovich noted.

She also said that rural tourism suggests farming or growing food. “Every farmstead is different, for example, by culinary recipes that are characteristic of a particular region. Many operators open, for example, a petting zoo on the grounds of their farmsteads. Today, children and young people from the cities often have no idea what animals look like. This service is popular. You go out of town together with your family and you show your kids the things they have seen only in books. It's good. You combine the useful with the pleasant,'” Irina Voronovich noted.
