Mir castle is a nice daytrip from Minsk. The castle has been well renovated, especially the ballroom. Sadly, like the rest of Belarus, staff speak basically no English, but there are English captions.

Before we visited, we didn't know about the local history and all of the landlords, the owners of the castle. The visit is interesting and teaches you something new about the country's history. The exposition inside the castle can be walked through in an hour. There's also a hotel and a restaurant inside a castle, which I found intriguing. Next... More

This is a UNESCO World Heritage site app 1.5 hours south of Minsk. The castle has been restored, but it's got beautiful grounds and the castle itself is pretty. The basement has a restaurant that serves local cuisine.

I think there aren't a thousand things to do in Belarus, so don't miss the Mir Castle. It's a beautiful place. Our guides only spoke russian though. We booked a tour in Minsk that included the meal as there is a restaurant in the basement of the castle. Sadly I don't remember the name of the tour company.

Were Mir Castle during the International Knightly tournaments (held there every year), we like very much, the child was delighted, was the impression that you are in the Middle Ages. Воок а hotel is difficult because they are only 2 and they are small.

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.

Not too difficult to get to from Minsk. Try to organize a taxi for about $60 to $85 if you can. It will be most comfortable and reliable with least hassle. The castle itself has good guided tours and is in good condition with knowledgable guides. Electronic guides are also available. In winter it is cold, very, very cold! Even... More
