Mir Castle, Mir

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. Put Mir Castle into our Mir online itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • UNESCO World Heritage site near Minsk. Castle complex with some fairly steep staircases. Worth the effort.  more »

  • Interesting renovated castle in Belarus, good for a day trip. Kids will love the uneven steps and small passageways that take you to the top of the towers, older adults less so . Good exhibitions on the history of the castle, including its time as a concentration camp for Jews who were almost all sadly massacred. Rather bizarrely you can stay here overnight as a small hotel has opened in one small area. It certainly would be an experience, but one I am happy to miss :-)
  • Great historical place to visit. Take high and narrow stairs to the top of the tower, go down to the prison and castle basement. Enjoyed the performance and walk around the castle.
