Mir

Famed throughout history for its flourishing Roma and Jewish communities, this village is home to a notable castle compound.

Mir (meaning "world" and "peace"; but the name most likely originates from the name of the river the settlement is situated on) is an urban settlement in Karelicy raion, Hrodna Voblast, Belarus on the banks of Miranka River, about 85 kilometers southwest of the national capital, Minsk. Prior to 1939 the town was in Poland. Mir village was founded sometime prior to 1345. It is home to a late medieval castle, which made the town the target of many attacks over the centuries. Its attractions are Mir Castle Complex, St. Nicholas' Church, and Church of the Holy Trinity.
