      You’ll have an awful time getting a visa to get in. That country is on USSR levels of being closed off to foreign interaction.

        omg Ted u believe in that story- man want to visit Minsk but “cruel dictator” won’t let him in. :)
        too much mainstream media , Ted.

      Don’t listen to Ted, he doesn’t have a clue, obviously.

        Seeing that I’m from Russia and am friends with Belorussians who have a very hard time getting their friends visas for visits, I’d think I know.

          Bad luck to them, then. I’ve been to Belarus twice. The first time was a two-month military tour to the navy base at Vileyka.

          The second time was a one week holiday trip to Minsk. No problems for me.

    Funniest thing is that Stalin Line was never used and when the Germans came the equipment was removed xD

    I’ll take my chances at the border…..after getting a visa in the UK of course…

    So, where is it exactly?

  4. critter says:

    It’s NW of Minsk 30km. Here are the LAT – LONG coordinates. 54° 3’23.58″N 27°17’53.57″E

    I’ve been there. My in-laws live about 15km from the Stalin Line. It’s not that difficult to get a Visa to Belarus, but you do have to register with the local officials once you are there.

    Some of the equipment displayed looks polished and new, it’s almost hard to believe that this is a war museum.

  6. critter says:

    There is equipment from the past 50-60 years. And of course they keep it polished and looking good.
