Cost of Living

Cost of living

Belarus is a cheap place to live. Indeed, according to’s July 2016 report, the cost of living in Belarus is well below the international average. This is quite evident when one considers a number of goods and services such as healthcare, transport, Internet service, groceries, restaurants and recreation. Ironically, however, household accommodations and their furnishings are more pricey. Still, the western international teaching expatriate should not only enjoy a high standard of living in Belarus, but should also be able to save a little money as well.
