| GENERAL INFO (Jump to Diary)|
The Republic of Belarus is an unitary presidential constitutional republic, covering 207.595 square kilometres. It is the home of 9.498.700 citizens, of which 55% are Christians.
The currency is Belarusian Ruble, worth 0,00035 Danish Krone and €0,00005. The GDP is US$45.126 billion.
It has a temperate-continental climate with moderate features which is characteristic for Central Europe, with hot summers, long, cold winters and very distinct seasons.
Among the larger mammals are especially the European Bison (Bison bonasus) and the Wild horse (Equus ferus) very interesting, but here are also Wild Boar (Sus scrofa), Moose (Alces alces), Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx), Gray wolf (Canis lupus), Brown bear (Ursus arctos) and European otter (Lutra lutra).
The flora is interesting too, but I have not found any species that I will be looking for in particular.
