Interesting castle, worth a visit. Good place to learn about history of Grand Duchy of Lithuania. Exhibitions resembles ones in Nesvizh, Vilnius and Trakai castles. A place is crowded with local tourists-in some places is even hard to pass.

If you visit the Nesvizh palace 30 km further south, you should definitely also visit the Mir castle. With your own car, you can easily visit both places in the same day from Minsk. This used to belong to the same noble family as Nesvizh Palace. The castle is very nicely restored and renovated, and there are very many nice... More

I was more outside. Inside I felt too many rules how many steps and where I can take. Looked for toilet wich was only in entrance. But when started a tour you cannot go back, only forward. So I rushed through the exibitions to reach back to toilet. But the nearby village is really nice and interesting. Go and walk... More

It was nice but not great. I was expecting a Disney castle but it felt very newly renovated. Also, a lot of information was not written in English. The surroundings are much more interesting than the castle. The small wooden houses and the genuine people, wow!

The castle is often paired with Nesvizh castle and they are similar. We had potato sausage "Pancake" in the restaurant which was excellent. Lots to see here

I visited Mir and Nesvizh Castles during the same day and therefore chose to travel with a group as it is difficult to combine the two destinations with public transport. I went with the tour agency Viapol and was pleased with the general trip arrangements, guides and price. I really enjoyed both of the romantic and historic castles. The museum... More

It was a very impressive visit with my Minsk colleagues. There is so much history of Europe captured here and the families who lived here. it has withstood the Napoleonic wars and was impacted by WWII. Also visit the Holy Trinity church. It can get busy and we were fortunate that the day was cool and we visited early in... More

I was quite impressed with the architecture of this castle. Had an opportunity to visit the towers as well as the museums and enjoyed the weapons on display. The audio guide provided is very helpful as well.

The place is a rebuilt/renovated medieval castle with a small park and a nice lake. The renovation feels somewhat too modern so the place does not always feel like a genuine castle. Nevertheless, it still offers a good entertaining for 2-3 hours for as cheap as $4 and is less than one hour drive away from Minsk. Definitely worth a... More

Beautiful historical landmark by the lake. Very entertaining both for adults and teenagers! If you don't feel comfortable of tiny stairways and small rooms avoid going to prison.
