  • 30 Jan'17
Mir Castle is one of the most famous and most visited castles in Belarus. Today the castle is a national monument and an art museum of the Republic of Belarus. In 2000 it became part of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The castle was constructed in the 16th century by Duke Ilyinich and represented a square fortress with five towers. Four towers were located on each corner and the fifth was built above the main gates. In 1569 the castle passed to the Radziwill magnate family who turned the castle into a Renaissance palace. In the Northern part of the complex there was set up an Italian garden and in the Southern part Ilyinich created a lake. In 1830 the Wittgenstein family became the owners of the castle, but never visited it. This led to the estate’s desolation and damage. In 1891 the castle was sold to the commander from the Russian Empire Nikolai Svyatopolk-Mirsky. He decided to reconstruct the castle and built a two-storeyed palace, a burial vault and laid out an English park.

In 1939 Mir Castle became government property. During the occupation period the castle was used as ghetto. In 1947 Mir Castle was taken under state protection and in 2000 it was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage. In 6 years restoration works started again and by the year 2010 the reconstruction was finally finished. Today Mir Castle Complex consists of the castle, landscape park, earthwork, pond, family vault, chapel and guard house. There is a restaurant of Belarusian cuisine, several conference halls, a gift shop and a hotel where tourists can have luxury rest for low price. Thousands of tourists visit Mir Castle every year. By the way, Belarusian government cancelled visas for 80 countries of the world, so it has become even easier to visit Belarus and its places of interest, learn more about Belarusian history, take part in knight festivals, visit concerts and exhibitions.
