A fascinating trip to Mir Castle held on a nice September day did not leave guests indifferent. During the tour they got to know the history of the owners of the castle, with the way of life of the Belarusians in 16th century, with the secrets and treasures of the princely family Radziwils. The guests learned what kind of drink was considered to be the most noble in the 17th century, why the ladies carried sixteen identical shoes to the ball, and why children in the Middle Ages were afraid of goat’s legs … The excursion ended with lunch on the picturesque shore of Svityaz Lake.
