If you’re up to spend this cold season in Minsk & think that barhopping is not the best way to manage winter stress, consider the following options to warm yourself up. We’ve gathered a short guide to some quite unusual sports one can find and enjoy in Minsk.

 

Capoeira

Capoeira represents an exceptional Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics, and play, accompanied by a peculiar kind of music. Capoeiristas are liberated, flexible, elusive, and always ready to strike on an opponent.

  Fundação Internacional Capoeira Artes das Gerais – free first lesson

  Abada Capoeira – free first lesson

 

Snowboarding

No mountains in the country? Well, that’s an opportunity. Snow School Minsk teaches you trampoline acrobatic tricks first and then lets you backflip, frontflip, and cork in the snow-covered lands of Lahojsk ski resort.

 Where to go? 

  Snow School Minsk – free first lesson, € 7 for any other

  GoRide – € 40-60 for 2 days of training or riders of any level of proficiency

 Where to go? 

  InMove – € 5 per hour
