Full description
Day 1: 3-hour guided Minsk city tour, private driving and walking tour This tour is delivered by a certified local professional whose language level is excellent or close. On this fascinating 3-hour driving and and walking tour of Minsk, learn about the Belarusian capital and see many buildings and monuments that stand as reminders of the Soviet time. Immerse yourself in the history of the city. Minsk was first mentioned in chronicles of the 11th century and 950 years later, it still has its secrets and mysteries. Your experienced guide will tell you interesting facts and stories about Minsk and Belarus. See important landmarks such as Gates of Minsk, Independence Square, Upper City, Iseland of Tears, and many more. Day 2: Self-guided tour of Minsk, Nesvizh Palace, and Mir Castle with an English-speaking driver Head to the famous palace and park complex in Nesvizh, just 70 miles from Minsk. Founded at the end of the 16th century by the Radziwills, the palace is 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 and now it’s even landed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list.  Mir Castle, located 18 miles from Nesvizh, was founded in the early 16th century as a residence. After the new hosts, the Radziwills, took over the castle, it was rebuilt into a luxurious palace, replete with luxurious apartments appointed with works of art. Successive wars and decades of neglect resulted in complete decay by the end of WWII. Only after the inclusion of the monument as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a long restoration process did Mir Castle regain its former luxury, and open its doors for visitors.
