It cover an area of 207,600 km² and has a population of 9,755,000. Minsk is the capital city and other major cities are Brest, Grodno, Gomel, Mogilev and Vitebsk. About one-third of the country is covered by forests and three major rivers flow through the country. Moreover, there are at least 11,000 lakes in the country.
