Mir Castle, Mir
(4.6/5 based on 550 reviews on the web)
The present form of Mir Castle testifies to its turbulent history. Gothic, Baroque, and Renaissance influences blend harmoniously to create this World Heritage-listed monument. The complex features exhibits, embankments, parks, ponds, and a chapel with the tomb of the last owner. View the reconstruction of the mid-18th century Rococo interior in the portrait hall and then rent an audio guide to learn more about the castle's history. You can taste some local cuisine at a restaurant in the basement. Amenities include a hotel and a gift shop. Be prepared to climb a lot of steep, narrow, winding stairways.

  • Visited with friends Mir castle. I honestly expected more! Ticket cost 10 p (~ 330 grew up). 20 r us offered a guide. In vain we refused! Without excursions nothing clear! Why don't all the halls were factsheets. Visit left a mixed impression. Interior halls and living rooms a little. Basically, the exhibition halls. Bypassed the entire Exposition, stopping at each exhibit and paintings, for 25-30 minutes (somehow not enough) for such "hyped". The unpleasant impression left by "ladies room". As if hit in the Soviet Union ((will not describe in detail who knows that understand. More pleasant impression restaurant On floor 1. kitchen mixed. We wanted to try the local forge and ordered potato pancakes and pans, mushrooms salt, Bacon prices to Belarusian standards. On Russian, more than are available. For 4 adults with alcohol-83r in General, we will not go for the second time!

  • Great place, a wonderful exposition, a bunch of souvenirs, and most importantly, you can arrive by bus from Minsk and back, serious savings impressions very much want now to visit during the summer. All recommend!

  • In order to show enough day in Minsk and, well, that got in locks. Close, the road is good. Mir castle is brutal and male. Available for inspection of towers where climbing through narrow, steep and spiral staircases.

  • Must! The eastern gothic styled palace/fortress in the world. Great history. Interesting museum complex and exposition. Cozy restaurant with charming staff. And finally very-very amazing hotel with modern well--equipped rooms, awesome view from windows. And very-very quiet at night. A little bit creepy but definitely cool!
  • A very sweet castle with a cellar restaurant, but a lousy museum. Perhaps for kids only - I would recommend to walk around more after lunch.
  • One of 4 belarusian objects in UNESCO list. Great defendive style, nice interiours. Interesting labirynth of spiral stairs in the towers - available not for everybody, as the stairs are very steep.
  • It was a pleasure to have a walk around the castle. We were there in autumn when yellow and red colored trees beautifully highlight the castle.
  • This is one of the best castles in Europe! Really worth going. Belarus was major European power for ages and these fantastic remains are good evidence.
