What to expect

Mir Castle (30 km away from Nesvizh) was founded in the early 16th century not far from Mir as a residence and was pretty expensive for its time. After the new hosts – the Radziwills – took over the castle, it was rebuilt into a magnate palace and beside thick curtain walls, loopholes, barracks and utility buildings it also featured luxurious apartments of the noble family that were appointed with works of art. Successive wars and decades of neglect resulted in complete decay of the castle by the end of WWII. It is only after the inclusion of the monument in UNESCO World Heritage List and a long restoration process that Mir Castle regained a part of its former luxury and was open for the visitors.

Founded at the end of the 16th century by the Radziwills, Nesvizh palace was a combination of several architectural styles. In the 19th century a huge park was laid out nearby and is a perfect place for a walk even today. The palace was used as a health resort which saved it from destruction. The Nesvizh palace-and-park complex is also a part of the World Heritage and today, when the restoration of the castle is almost complete, it is open to public.

The route runs through picturesque landscapes. You will see the real Belarusian rural life. If you wish, you can stop and buy locally produced foods: milk, honey and cottage cheese.

PLEASE NOTE, that there will not be any tour guide. The driver will help you to buy entrance tickets and audio guide and will be waiting for you during your tour. Entrance tickets also not included in total price.
