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. See Mir Castle and all Mir has to offer by arranging your trip with our Mir vacation route planner.

  • Liked that there was tremendous work on the restoration of the Castle-it was destroyed. Also, that established two-way communications with the former owners of the Castle. Very friendly and helpful staff. All were quite intelligent, since sellers of tickets at the box office, and especially the guy who conducted a tour

  • In one of the weekend took a spontaneous decision-to go to the Mir castle. Previously there were not. Before the world got quickly. At the entrance to the city the castle itself is not visible, there are no pointers. Get lost a bit, but the benefit of a small city, so quickly found. Of course the Castle live does not produce a majestic impression. The entrance ticket for a reasonable price. But when buying a ticket was not invited to the headphones. (Be sure to ask, because without it, or without a guide there's nothing else to do). The exposition is very weak. But for a family pastime.

  • 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.
