From Minsk: Mir and Niesvizh Castles

1. From Minsk: Mir and Niesvizh Castles

Begin your day with pickup at your accommodation in Minsk, then discover Belarus with your experienced, English-speaking driver-guide. Drive through picturesque landscapes on your way to two small towns, Mir and Niesvizh. Along the way, see real Belarusian countryside life and, if you wish, stop and buy local products like milk, honey, and cottage cheese. Both of the medieval castles that you will visit are UNESCO World Heritage sites built in the 16th century. The owners of the castles were the wealthy Radziwill Family, the richest family in Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. Everyone who visits Belarus should get acquainted with these masterpieces. Mir is an impressive defensive castle and was restored between 1983 and 2010. Today, this five-tower gothic castle is a real gem of Belarus with much in the way of mystery, history, and legends. The Nesvizh castle is also a magnificent palace with fortifications. It was the residence of the Radziwill family until 1939. The palace was also restored between 2002 and 2011. Now it's a popular tourist attraction and 400,000 tourists visit the castle every year. At the end of the day, you will be taken back to your accommodation.
