The museum can be quite crowded, due to tour groups, so try to be there as early as possible (it opens at 10 am). Very picturesque castle.

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.
