Prices in Belarussian cities
Minsk (the country’s capital) is the most expensive city in Belarus. First of all, this applies to housing prices and certain food products. However, the average bill in cafes and restaurants in Minsk is also slightly higher than in other Belarussian cities.
Cost of one trip on public transport in Minsk:
- metro — 0.70 rubles;
- trolleybus, tram, bus — 0.65 rubles;
- express bus — 0.80 rubles.
Tickets are usually sold at kiosks near a public transport stop or from the driver. When buying from the driver, the fare increases by 5 kopecks.
Want to pay cheaper? Pay attention to transport maps.
In other cities of the country, public transport is cheaper.
Food prices in the country are approximately the same. In large cities, it is easier to find the right products, because there are more stores.

In short, the prices of clothing and bed linen in Belarus are much lower than in any EU country.
Housing and rent
Long-term rent of a single-room apartment in Minsk costs 650 Belarusian rubles per month. In other cities, it is much cheaper.
For long-term rentals, you must also pay for housing and utilities services (electricity, water, etc.). The price of housing and utilities is about 50 rubles a month.
