Mir Castle, Mir

(4.7/5 based on 600 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. See Mir Castle and all Mir has to offer by arranging your trip with our Mir vacation route planner.

  • I really liked it. Be sure to visit one more time. This is without question. With the help of the Castle, you can immerse yourself in history for a long time.

  • 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.
