It is a small castle in a small town, appears on the field as a toy. Built in the Gothic style, destroyed by wars and again restored by the government. Inside the castle you are immersed in the spirit of the Middle Ages. There was...More
The subject. Just visit this the place and you will agree with me. It is difficult to find out the historical places in Belarus so it is a rare one that can change your opinion about the country and its' history.
A castle dating back to the 15th century, belonging to the noble family and which had gone through many centuries being reconstructed many times. It is very interesting to go through its hall and see the real history of the past days, belonings of the...More
We combined this with Niaßvizh Castle, as most do, and They are both well worth seeing - indeed they are really the only out of Mir attractions within a reasonable distance. We booked a lrivate trip through Minsk Holidays, and lir guide Yuri was excellent...More
Our group of 20 came for a guided tour of Mir Castle, which is actually a 16th century fortification. Originally built by the Ilinich family, it fell into the hands of a member of the Radziwill family when the original owners line died out.
WHen I was searching for tours to take during my trip to Belarus I did not realize that the castles included in my tour are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
THe trip to the castles took about an hour and a half from Minsk.

It depends!there are good trips from Minsk,including a guide following you and some more historical sights besides Mir!like nesvizh)the thing is that local guides might not speak English,only Russian(and audioguide inside the castle is horrible,very boring!
If you choose to stop in Mir first,there are a few hotels,two three places to eat,but besides the castle there is nothing to do there(from Mir you can take a bus to Minsk!
So,in my opinion-the guide-tour from Minsk may cost you more,but you will get a better idea of the sights,cover several and won't have to think about transportation
