  • A beautiful castle in the middle of a great park. Provides peak into Czarist and Belarussian history.

  • Всем надо хоть один раз побывать в таком замечательном месте. "The central part of the palace is an architectural monument of the late 18th century (1777-1796). The life and work of prominent personalities of the Russian state, statesmen and military figures are connected with its history"
  • The palace is worth visiting. Excursion was also fine. You can buy audio guide at the cashier and allowance for taking photos (1 rub each in july 2021) Administration: improve your pricing policy - include in 1 ticket all spots for sightseeing on the palace's territories. It's extremely tyring to pay by cash at every stop. In addition, at the tower consider enlarging storage facilities. You can even make them paid. It's tyring to take in 190 steps with back pack.
