currency for Belarus questions

edited March 2012 in - Eastern Europe
What currency is best for Belarus? Can I change money there or will it be best to do it before I leave the UK? I don't really know how much things cost, but how much spending money do I need for a one-week holiday in Belarus (including meals but not accommodation)?

    Take some cash, USD or euro that you will be able to exchange into local rubles, BYR, in any exchange kiosk or bank. The rate is the same across the country. Appetites are different, but USD 30 is more than enough for meals and tourist attractions. All official payments (e.g. in shops or cafes) are carried out in BYR.
