Mir Castle, Mir

(600+ reviews on the web)
Castle Tourist Spot
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.

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.
  • 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 the place to be seen in Belarus. In the castle many exhibitions and get ready to be very high steps. The lake next to the parking lot there are a few cafes.
