Get in[edit]

By car[edit]

Nesvizh (the town is marked at road signs as "Niasvizh") is situated to the south-east of M1/E30 highway between Minsk and Baranavičy. Use the P-11 road through Haradzieja (direct and broad) or P-54 through Stoubtsy (narrow); both of them have intersections with M1/E30.

By bus[edit]

Buses to Nesvizh are departing from Minsk autostations "Central" and "Eastern". Usually Nesvizh is not the final destination, but Pinsk or another city. There are 4 or 5 buses a day from Minsk. They cost around 6 to 8 rubles and take about 90 minutes. The buses stop at 1 Nesvizh bus station.

By train[edit]

At Minsk Pasažyrski station, ordinary suburban trains (economy class ER-9 elektrichka) stop in Haradzieja/Gorodeya station (costs 2.1 rubles), but don't confuse these trains with business-class suburban trains EPR — they don't have a stop there. The bus from Haradzieja to Nesvizh (costs 1.2 rubles) is leaving soon after every suburban train from Minsk. It is departing from the stop right behind the railway station and ends at the Nesvizh bus station. It is the cheapest way to come to Nesvizh. It will take from 1.5 to 2 hours to travel from Minsk to Haradzeya and 25 minutes from Haradzieja to Nesvizh.
