Enjoyed walking around the castle. Probably easiest to hire a car from Minsk and visit Mir and Viesnizh at the same time--- cost me about USD 220 for the day.

As I live in Belarus- I can visit a lot of different places here- but the most lovevy as, certainly, Mir Castle- not really far from Minsk. Now it is already renovated and opened to the tourist.
