Geography, Weather, & Wildlife of Belarus
Belarus is located in the northern half of Eastern Europe
and borders Poland (west), Ukraine
(south), Russia (east), Latvia (northwest),
and Lithuania (northwest).
Geographically, Belarus is very low-lying; this makes some
areas ideal for life, while others are too low, making flooding and swamps common,
particularly in the south. Outside these swampy areas the country is fairly uniform
in regards to geography as the population is evenly distributed outside the larger
Belarus generally has four distinct seasons, with a slightly
longer winter. Winters tend to run from about December to March, but if you're
from a warmer climate it may feel like winter during their spring and fall (autumn)
as well. Winter temperatures tend to remain below freezing with daily highs in the
range of 21-32°F (-6°C to 0°C). In the fall (autumn) temperatures can drop quickly
and unpredictably from year to year; likewise, springs can be unpredictable.
