Why locals love it

When you first enter this shop you may be puzzled by the sheer volume of books, especially as it's almost impossible to navigate the shelves and piles upon piles of publications. However, if you're a true book enthusiast, this place is heaven!

Why you should visit it

Wander around, browse the shelves and stacks, peruse the titles, flip through the pages... It's easy to lose yourself here! Afterwards you'll realise that there's a method to the madness and that it's easy to find both the book you're looking for, and something truly unexpected. There's also a good section with Belarusian books and souvenirs.

Special tip

Most titles are available only in Slavic languages.

Now they also sell souvenirs and Belarus guides. You may be lucky to find local writers translated there.
