World Heritage

Mir Castle is one of 936 (according to the 35th Session of the World Heritage Committee) facilities around the world, recognized "universal value" in accordance with the Convention on the Conservation of World Heritage Sites in 1972. Mir Castle was included in the UNESCO World Natural and Cultural Heritage at the meeting of the World Heritage Committee, held in Cairns (Australia) in 2000.

Through these events, Mir Castle has become one of the national symbols of the Republic of Belarus during this time. It is recognized and known outside our country. The object is the most typical and expressive among the medieval castles of Belarus. The state of preservation of its stone structures that were built in the first phase of its construction (at the beginning of the XVI century.) is the best in comparison with other similar properties.

Mir Castle was included in the List of World Cultural and Natural Heritage:
• As an outstanding example of central European castle, which reflects the gradual shift of cultural styles (Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque);
• As a visual reflected in the shape and appearance of the ensemble of the long history of political and cultural confrontations and interactions.
