The minimum value of the radius of a strange star covered by the crust of nuclear matter is determined. The results for the maximum possible thickness of the crust (up to the neutron drip) as well as the possibility of thinner crust postulated by some authors are discussed. The minimum radius of the strange star with maximal crust is 5.5 km. The useful scaling formulae with respect to the main parameters describing strange matter and the density at the bottom of the crust are presented.
