The Mir Castle complex consists of a fortress-residence, a picturesque park in English style, an Italian garden, a pond, a chapel-tomb and a roadside chapel. The formation of the architecture of the Mir Castle was influenced by three styles: Gothic, Renaissance and Rococo.
For the first time Мir was mentioned in 1434 when it becomes a private estate of Senko Gedygoldovich.
In 1817, after the castle had been abandoned for nearly a century and had suffered severe damage in the Battle of Mir. Owner died and castle was sold to Mikalaj Sviatapolk-Mirski, of the Bialynia clan (Poland), in 1895. Nikolai's son Michael began to rebuild the castle according to the plans of architect Teodor Bursze. The Sviatapolk-Mirski family owned the castle until 1939, when the Soviet Union occupied eastern Poland.
After the liberation of Belarus in July 1944 dwellers of Mir whose houses had been ruined found refuge in the castle. The last family moved out from the castle in 1962.
