Can an unmarried couple (one American, one Russian) stay in same hotel room in Minsk? Or is there a hassle?

    Belarus Is pretty Soviet, but not that Soviet. – ach Nov 15 '18 at 18:51
  • @ach I don't understand what that means? – Michael Hampton Nov 15 '18 at 23:12
  • @MichaelHampton in the USSR there were strict rules against unmarried people sharing accommodations, and they still exist in many communist countries. – jwenting Dec 11 '18 at 4:53

It is completely ok. Nobody will be checking if you are married or not. It is a post-soviet country, but I do not know any post-soviet country in Europe which will have laws or regulation for unmarried couples.

  • Poland. We were not allowed to stay in the same room... Had to get separate ones. This was 2009 though. – Sebastian Dec 11 '18 at 7:41
  • @Sebastian Poland is very catholic, so perhaps some hotel owners won't allow it, although I expect that —especially at larger hotel chains— no one will be bothered. I don't think it had anything to do with being (post) soviet. – Berend Dec 11 '18 at 11:25
