8 Castles, Palaces and Mansions of Belarus

8 Castles, Palaces and Mansions of Belarus

Belarus lies in the center of Europe. It was a place at the crossroads "From the Vikings to the Greeks" and from European capitals to Moscow. Numerous invaders came here with fire and sword: the Mongol-Tatars and Crusaders, the Swedes, Napoleon's troops, the Nazis. Talented Belarusian ancestors left a legacy of magnificent monuments, showcasing the original traditions of Belarusian architecture, inseparable from that of Europe and the whole world at the same time. It seems if you disturb the dust of ages on these majestic ruins, you can feel the pulse of history. It is no accident many ancient Belarusian cities and towns surrounding palace and castle complexes like Nesvizh, Mir, Pruzhani, Rhuzhani, and Lida, have become the venue for various medieval festivals of battles, music and art.
Discover the most majestic castles, palaces and mansions of Belarus.

1) Mir Castle

The Mir Castle is truly the pearl of Belarusian architecture. In its 500 of history, the castle has experienced many moments of decline and revival, and is today a national monument and the Art Museum of Belarus. It’s included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

On the one hand, accommodation costs can be a huge part of travelling expenses, something you would normally want to keep down. But on the other hand, choosing great accommodation is an excellent opportunity to add a very special feel to your travel experience! Some hotels can undeniably boast an unusual location / unique atmosphere / extraordinary architecture, design or artwork, along with special additional features, like beautiful gardens, pools and activities to keep you busy.Here is my list of seven very special hotels I have stayed at, for you to try: Shojoshin-in, Koyasan, Japan: A Buddhist Temple The only time I have stayed in a temple so far was in Koyasan, the birthplace of Japanese Buddhism. Temple lodgings, known as ‘shukubo’, are popular accommodation among overseas visitors in Koyasan. In the past, they were only for monks engaged in ascetic practices, then gradually started hosting pilgrims as well. Now there are tourist temple lodgings in 52 Koyasan shukubos.My travel mate and I stayed in Shojoshin-in.
