Belarus should be nice. Haven't been to either but I got Chernobyl syndrome lately. Besides, it's near.

Otherwise poland, if you're into history and haven't been. Or romania. I feel eastern europe has a different charm and also cheaper expenses.

Curious where your flight stopover is?

Main problem with Belarus is you need to fly in and out of Minsk Airport to get visa-free access.

By plane you can visit Belarus or Romania. Else if you want to go by train you can try Poland (Warsaw / Krakow) or Hungary (Budapest / Eger).

Doubt so, eastern europe mostly no, I checked before. Unless you fly to poland via LOT then go to ukraine.

If you are visiting Poland or Lithuania, you could also visit Brest and Grodno regions of Belarus visa free 15 days - catch is that you must book a pre-approved tour or assistance from a local tour operator. Also need valid insurance. Another catch is registration with migration police if staying longer than 5 days.

I’m planning to enter Ukraine (Odessa) from Romania/Moldova this October, spending about a week then flying into Minsk

Yup travelling solo. Are your travel dates flexible though? Mine aren’t (would like to cover the 3 main cities Odesa, L’viv and Kyiv plus squeeze in side trips if possible), and have already booked onward flight to Belarus. I have already done up a Ukraine itinerary something like this:

D1 - Odessa (arrive late morning)
D2 - Odessa side trip, to L’viv overnight by train
D3 - L’viv full day
D4 - L’viv to Chernivtsi (visit first half of day), then Kamianets-Podilskyi or Khotyn fortress (second half of day, may KIV join guided tour), overnight train to Kyiv
D5 - Kyiv
D6 - Chernobyl side trip (only with tour agency, no independent travel)
D7 - Kyiv, flight to Minsk late afternoon

U travel alone? Can tag along?
