Lawyer-turned-author and charity worker Nigel Roberts is one of the leading experts on Belarus, a much misunderstood country that is gradually opening up more to the rest of the world. This new edition remains the only dedicated English-language guide to Belarus and will be of particular interest to the growing number of visitors from the USA interested in tracing the history of their Jewish families. The promotion of tourism to Belarus was growing rapidly when the first edition was published in June 2008, and the rate of growth has continued to the present day, not least due to the country's increasing profile in world sport.
Nigel Roberts is an ex-lawyer turned author. He is heavily involved in sustainable development projects in Belarus through his charity

Editorial Reviews

'Nigel Roberts' new guidebook to Belarus, just published by Bradt Travel Guides, is authoritative and insightful . This is the Belarus which is very competently mapped in the first ever English guidebook to the country . Nigel Roberts, author of the new volume, has produced a text that is authoritative, insightful and helpful for travellers to the country . Getting to grips with Belarus isn't easy. Roberts has managed to get beyond Soviet-style monuments and hotels with dreary décor to write with enthusiasm about everything from Belarusian bathhouses to Old Believers. He is particularly strong in his accounts of everyday life and culture. The volume has decent coverage of Belarus' six major cities .Roberts is strong again on national parks and nature reserves, a theme that has always been a feature of so many Bradt guides. And there are some wonderful descriptions of the extreme south-east of the country, an area devastated by fallout from Chernobyl'. Hidden Europe Magazine
