Minsk Card for 2nd European Games to be issued by 1 December

MINSK, 14 November (BelTA) – A special edition of the Minsk Card will be issued in the run-up to the 2nd European Games by 1 December, Director of Mingorspravka Boris Vasiliev said at the BelTA press center on 14 November.

The cards will be sold in partnership with the Ticketpro company, the ticket operator of the 2nd European Games.

The special edition of the Minsk Card will be valid for 14 days and will feature Belarus’ most popular historical sites. It will help schedule an unassisted trip across Minsk, Minsk Oblast and the country in general. The Minsk Card holder will be able to get discounts and bonuses. There are no plans to include public transport option into this card.

“We expect that during the European Games, visitors will mostly travel across Minsk and Minsk Oblast. However, they might as well get interested in tourist sites outside Minsk Oblast,” Boris Vasiliev said.

The cost of the 14-day Minsk Card has not been announced, but according to preliminary estimates, it will not exceed Br30.

The tourist project “Minsk Card. Cities&Regions of Belarus” is implemented by Mingorspravka with support of the Sports and Tourism Ministry, Culture Ministry and the Minsk Tourist Center in line with the tourism promotion program Hospitable Belarus for 2016-2020. Taking part in the project are museums, galleries, zoos, water parks, hotels, restaurants, cafes, shopping centers, car and bicycle rentals that offer bonuses and discounts.

When the project was launched, it incorporated 74 facilities of Minsk and the region. However, now it features over 200 tourist attractions all over the country. Their number will rise to exceed 1,000 by the new tourist season. The Minsk Card will be available in nine sales points and online. The information about the Minsk Card is available on the website of the project in English and Russian. Work is underway to translate the information into Chinese and German.

The 2nd European Games will take place in Minsk on 20-30 June 2019. Athletes will compete in about 200 medal events in 15 sports. The forum is expected to welcome about 18,000 official participants. The competitions will be broadcast in 160 countries.
